Fiduciary Rule-Related Updates

April 17, 2017- In a letter submitted to the Department of Labor, NAFA, the National Association for Fixed Annuities is urging a further delay of the fiduciary duty rule beyond its current June 9 partial applicability date, while the Department completes its comprehensive examination of the rule as directed by President Trump in his February 3rd White House Memorandum.

March 14, 2017- NAFA has submitted a comment letter to the DOL regarding the proposed 60-day delay of the fiduciary rule’s applicability date. As the comment letter makes clear, NAFA strongly supports a proposed delay to give the DOL time to review significant questions of law and policy raised by the rule and in support of the memorandum issued by the President on February 3, 2017.
