Fiduciary Rule Webinar Recording

If you didn't have an opportunity to dial in to the fiduciary rule webinar on December 14, you can still listen and view the presentation. Click here to learn the history/background of the fiduciary rule, the regulations, and who will be directly/indirectly impacted. 

The fiduciary rule expands the "investment advice fiduciary" definition under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The legislation will automatically elevate all financial professionals who work with retirement plans to provide retirement planning advice to the level of fiduciary, bound legally and ethically to meet the standards of that status.
