As expected, the Department of Labor’s Fiduciary Rule has officially been delayed until at least June 9. What was not expected is that the expanded definition and principles-based Impartial Conduct Standards may survive in the final Rule. With that in mind, join us as we examine the substance of the Rule modifications and why advisors should be prepared to meet the impartial conduct standards as soon as June 9. We will also look at the broader compliance picture under the Rule, the overall trends affecting the future of investment advice, and how the advice market is already responding despite uncertainty.
