On May 18, 2015 in Tibble v. Edison International, the Supreme Court found that plan fiduciaries have an ongoing fiduciary obligation under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) to monitor plan investments, a duty separate and apart from the fiduciary's duty to be careful and sensible when first selecting plan investments. After a year, the US Labor Department (DOL) has released its fiduciary regulatory package which requires financial advisers and brokers handling individual retirement and 401(k) accounts to act in the best interests of the retirement investors, commonly called the fiduciary or conflict of interest rule. Under these changes, the final rule extends the scope of ERISA to vast segments of the retirement market that did not exist at the time of ERISA's adoption.
In this two-hour Live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the fiduciary fundamentals and will discuss the latest developments in DOL's recently released fiduciary regulatory package. Speakers will also offer guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls and risks, and review key challenges and updates that plan fiduciaries should know.
Topics to be covered in this course include:
Fundamental and Functional Fiduciary Issues
Risks that Plan Fiduciaries Face under ERISA
Conflict of Interest Regulation
Tibble v. Edison International
Compliance and Best Practices
