Season 3 Episode 15 – A New Fiduciary Proposal
On October 31, the Biden Administration rolled out its long-anticipated update to the fiduciary rule.
While it’s got a new name (the Retirement Security Rule), it builds on, and extends the Labor Department’s reach by both focusing on the needs and perceptions of the retirement investor and eliminating the “regular basis” aspect of the so-called five-part test that has long been an integral component of what was considered to define an ERISA fiduciary.
In the latest episode Nevin (Adams) and Fred (Reish) consider the historical framework of the ERISA fiduciary definition, how the proposed rule would alter that, and what obstacles lie between that proposal and its ultimate adoption.
