After months of speculation and bureaucratic jockeying, the DOL Fiduciary Rule went live at 11:59 PM on June 9th.
This landmark ruling from the Department of Labor will require financial professionals to uphold a fiduciary standard when making investment recommendations on qualified retirement accounts. At its core, this means that recommendations made by a financial professional must not only meet a suitability standard – they must be in the client’s best interest.
While this concept is straightforward, the financial industry has struggled with the details of how to regulate, monitor, and document this process from a compliance standpoint.
It’s with this in mind WealthVest is launching a solution for financial professionals based on the Nobel Prize winning theory, the Prospect Theory. Built into the platform are compliance checks to ensure financial professionals abide by the impartial conduct standards of PTE 84-24 to address the many regulatory challenges under the DOL Fiduciary Rule. This state-of-the-art platform will help financial professionals to transition their business on and after June 9th. Learn more about WealthVest and their resources regarding the DOL Fiduciary Rule.
