Rich Lynch, AIFA®, Lead AIF® Instructor, Broadridge Fi360 Solutions

The vast majority of the world’s liquid investable wealth is in the hands of investment fiduciaries, and the success or failure of investment fiduciaries can have a material impact on the fiscal health of any country. The timeless principles that underlie the fiduciary standard, such as loyalty and care, provide the basis for trustworthy conduct by those who are entrusted with other peoples’ money. Fiduciary laws and regulations serve to define the details of prudent investment processes. Those prudent processes make adherence to the core fiduciary principles practical and reliable.

In this session, we will introduce you to the Prudent Practices®, substantiated in law and regulation, that serve as a guide to investment fiduciaries striving to fulfill their fiduciary obligations. By following a structured process based on the Practices, the fiduciary can be confident that critical components of an investment strategy are properly implemented and followed.

Lost at Sea – ERISA safe harbors expose participants to increased risk

Dan Long, DoubleLine

Andy Larson, Retirement Learning Center

January 21, 2021

Popular ERISA features inadvertently expose participants to increased levels of investment risk and retirement insecurity. In addition, investment defaults, commonly known as QDIAs, have promoted a one-size-fits-all investment approach. This presentation explores how this situation evolved and the importance of changing this mind-set and trajectory. Next, we explore alternatives available to provide plan participants the support and direction needed to ensure appropriate retirement income planning and investment decision-making. Lastly, we look at the steps plan committees can take to assess and implement these solutions.

Impact Analysis: Unpacking the DOL’s Investment Advice Exemption for Banks & Registered Investment Advisers

Jason C. Roberts, CEO, Pension Resource Institute & Retirement Law Group

Steve Niehoff, COO, Pension Resource Institute

December 18, 2020

Now that the DOL has published its long-awaited final regulation designed to fill the void left when the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the Obama-era “fiduciary rule.”  The rule comes in the form of a Prohibited Transaction Exemption (PTE) that is technical and nuanced, and its impact on banks and RIAs cannot be overstated.  Indeed, among other requirements, the conditions of the exemption must be satisfied any time one of their representatives recommends an IRA rollover.

Steve and Jason break down the PTE, discuss strategies for compliance and provide actionable takeaways for attendees.
