Release of the new U.S. Department of Labor Conflict of Interest Rule will expand ERISA fiduciary standards to cover individual retirement accounts. Investment, distribution and rollover advice will soon be held to new standards of care.

This change will transform the landscape of the financial services profession, as well as your business model.

The new DOL rule will dramatically alter insurance, brokerage and investment advisory engagements, as well as transform the way variable annuities, mutual funds and other financial service products are used today.

The American College of Financial Services is creating a Professional Standards Course and a webcast series that will teach financial services professionals how to do business in this new environment. Learn more about these courses here.

In the meantime, The College’s webcast, The DOL Conflict of Interest Rule: What Does It Mean For You, will help you get answers right away.
