DOL Fiduciary Rule Put on Hold

by | Last updated Apr 3, 2019 | Employers

The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on March 15,2018 that the Department of Labor overstepped its bounds in creating the so-called fiduciary rule, parts of which went into effect last year. In general, the rule required that advisors and brokers charge clients the same fee no matter what product they offer them. The so-called conflict of interest provision.

There is talk that the SEC and or FINRA both of whom regulate advisors and brokers will pick up the ball from the DOL and implement their own retirement advice rule. Some think these organizations because they regulate brokers and advisors are better suited than the DOL who governs retirement plans to apply a new standard.
