In April, the Department of Labor (DOL) released the final version of its conflict of interest rule—also known as the fiduciary rule—which represents the most significant rule change to impact retirement plans in over 40 years. As a plan sponsor, it is important that you understand this rule and its potential implications for your plan and participants.
On Thursday, June 23, 2016, CAPTRUST hosted a webinar where CAPTRUST Defined Contribution Practice Leader Scott Matheson explained the new regulations and the important questions plan sponsors need to address as these rules go into effect. This webinar will help you understand key aspects of the conflict of interest rule, including:
- What makes someone a fiduciary under the new rules;
- Potential service provider business model changes; and
- Things to look out for as you work to comply with the new rules.
