Hefren-Tillotson Statement on Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule

The Department of Labor’s final fiduciary rule was introduced today, which significantly expands ERISA’s definition of fiduciary advice. The rule is applicable to retirement plans and the IRAs of most Americans.

The intent of the rule is to expand those subject to fiduciary rules, and to require those providing advice to serve in the best interest of the client. The fiduciary rule will apply to any person who makes an investment recommendation to a plan, a participant, or an IRA holder.
