DENVER (PRWEB) November 06, 2018
The September/October issue of the Investments & Wealth Institute® Investments & Wealth Monitor focuses on the fiduciary and regulatory challenges facing the investments and wealth management industry today.
The past few years have brought many changes to firms and advisors’ fiduciary responsibilities from the 2015 U.S. Department of Labor fiduciary rule, later vacated in March 2018; to the April 2018 U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission version of a fiduciary rule released for comment. The changing landscape of the industry’s regulatory environment requires close examination.
