Content I Write

Ideas and Pitches I Wrote

The DOL's New Fiduciary Rule: Will it Be Trumped?

The U.S. Department of Labor's new fiduciary law that makes it mandatory for financial advisers to make recommendations in retirement accounts to be in the best interest of clients is set to go into effect in April. However, soon-to-be President Trump is hinting at loosening restrictions. What does the investment landscape look like today and how can institutions prepare for the looming deadline? I can also look at solutions from companies like Salesforce that make it easier to comply.
