Momentous changes are likely in store this year for financial advisors operating under the fiduciary standard and similar regulations. The questions are, how much will the contours of the fiduciary standard change and will lawmakers, regulators and the courts weaken the centuries-old standard of care for professionals held to a position of trust and confidence by their clients? Join Fi360’s Blaine Aikin and Duane Thompson as they examine the issues of the day likely to impact your practice. Some of the issues to be examined are regulatory enforcement of the fiduciary standard by federal and state regulators, potential compliance issues related to Regulation Best Interest, and an update on the tidal wave of ERISA excessive fee lawsuits against financial services firms and major universities. The fiduciary standard is dynamic and every-changing. Begin the New Year with a clear-eyed fiduciary perspective.
