About this talk
The replay is eligible one IMCA® CE credit
Provisions of the DOL’s fiduciary rule went into effect on June 9, but the controversy over its impact on advisors and clients continues. In this live, Munk-style debate moderated by Bob Huebscher, Tom and Knut will take opposing sides on the following proposition:
The benefits to investors and society of implementing the DOL fiduciary rule far outweigh the costs
Knut will speak in favor of this proposition, while Tom will argue against it, covering issues such as:
•Should the decision to work with an advisor who adheres to the fiduciary standard or the suitability standard be left to investors, rather than the government?
•Will the rule create administrative burdens and liability risks that will discourage advisors from serving retirement clients?
•Will registered representatives moving from commission-based to fee-based compensation no longer be willing to take on clients with smaller pools of retirement assets?
Knut and Tom will answer attendees’ questions during the session and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
