In April 2016, the Department of Labor (DOL) has released its long-awaited final fiduciary rule which expands the “investment advice fiduciary” definition under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The rule requires retirement advisors to prioritize the best interest of their clients and provide greater transparency for investors. Given the wide-ranging implications of this rule, it is imperative for financial advisors, broker dealers and insurance agents to review their compensation systems and implement the changes and requirements set forth in the final rule.
