Financial Services Conflict of Interest and Fiduciary Duties

Financial Services Conflict of Interest and Fiduciary Duties

Why You Should Attend

The legal framework applying to fiduciary investment advice is undergoing a sea change.  The DOL has finalized rulemaking that is dramatically changing the regulatory framework establishing fiduciary duties and obligations for broker-dealers, advisors and service providers in the retirement marketplace. At the same time, the SEC continues to advance its consideration of whether to subject broker-dealers and advisers to a harmonized uniform standard of care.  While the regulatory framework takes shape, regulators are subjecting regulatory entities to intense scrutiny regarding firms’ identification, disclosure and mitigation of conflicts of interest.  In this program, we review the respective frameworks and discuss practical considerations for navigating the regulatory maze.
