Program Overview

The Department of Labor has announced their redefinition of the term “fiduciary” in order to serve the best interests of clients. This means that almost everyone who provides financial advice will legally have fiduciary responsibilities. A panel of experts will explore the ramifications of the DOL decision and help advisors continue to thrive within the new regulations.

Moderator Richard Weber, MBA, CLU, AEP, with panelists Stephen Parrish, JD, CLU, ChFC, RHU, Ernest Guerriero, CLU, ChFC, CEBS, CPCU, CPC, CMS, AIF, and Peter Swisher, CFP, CPC, will discuss the new regulations and their impact on insurance agents, registered representatives, and financial planners. The panel will cover how the law will change the way advisors interact with clients and the advice they give. The panel will talk about how the regulations will affect advisors based on their form of compensation; how the regulations affect the implementation and enforcement process; and how producers and advisors will need to adjust their practices in order to work within the framework of the regulations.

This program will feature a variety of scenarios specifically designed to address the needs of qualified plan advisors, IRA advisors, nonproduct advisors, agents, and brokers.

Attendees will learn:

  • Steps that agents and brokers must take to comply with the regulations
  • How the regulations will impact qualified plan advisors within the Form 5500 framework
  • How the regulations will affect attorneys, CPAs, and RIAs
  • How advisors can restructure their business models to legally and ethically avoid coming under the DOL fiduciary umbrella

  • Estate planners
