King & Spalding e-Learn: The Department of Labor’s New Fiduciary Rule: What do Retirement Plan Sponsors and Fiduciaries Need to Know Now?

The U.S. Department of Labor recently issued a rule broadening the category of service providers who may be considered ERISA fiduciaries of retirement plans as a result of giving investment advice. The new rule is expected to significantly change retirement plan service providers’ business practices and offerings. Plan sponsors and fiduciaries should begin preparing for the new rule’s impact on plan administration. Sign up now for a discussion about:

  • The relevant parts of the new fiduciary rule, including the broadened definition of “investment advice” and the requirements of the new “best interest contract” prohibited transaction exemption
  • Which service providers may become fiduciaries of your retirement plan
  • The impact of the new rule on participant investment education, rollovers and other aspects of retirement plan administration
  • The actions that plan sponsors and fiduciaries should be taking now to prepare for the rule’s implementation
  • The reaction of investment industry and legal professionals

This program will be of interest to 401(k) plan sponsors and investment committee members and other retirement plan fiduciaries and administrators, including CFOs, human resources teams and corporate counsel.
The program will include a question and answer session, and the speakers will be happy to answer additional questions after the program.
