DOL Sends Final Fiduciary Rule to OMB

The Department of Labor has sent a final fiduciary rule titled “Retirement Security Rule: Definition of an Investment Advice Fiduciary” to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Text of the final rule is not available until after OMB completes their review. A proposed rule released last fall would expand the definition of investment advice fiduciary under ERISA and would make amendments to prohibited transaction exemptions regarding eligibility and conditions for exemption. A 60-day comment period on the proposal ended January 2, 2024.

 Ascensus will follow developments and provide additional details when available.
