Oct. 12 Webinar Will Help Solve Advisors' DOL Fiduciary Rule Compliance Puzzle
Top ERISA Expert & Award Winning Researcher Demystify Best Interest Reporting Requirements and More
NEW YORK, October 10, 2017 (Newswire.com) - RiXtrema, the leading provider of risk management tools, analysis and DOL compliance guidance to the financial advisory and broker/dealer community to help ensure that investors get the analysis and advice they need, will host a webinar on October 12, 2017, to help advisors comply with the requirements of being an ERISA fiduciary. The webinar will be led by two top experts in respective fields of pension law and investment management.
“Since June 9, 2017, any advisor working with new IRA assets is effectively an ERISA fiduciary,” said RiXtrema President Daniel Satchkov. “This status triggers obligations to comply with the Impartial Conduct Standard, which addresses a number of requirements, including charging no more than a reasonable fee. Many advisors are not clear on what they need to be doing to remain in compliance. For the past year, we have been laser-focused on helping advisors understand their obligations and providing technology tools they can use to meet them.”
