‘September Morn’ – Trump Administration has SEC and DOL zero in on Fall 2019 for fiduciary rulemaking

By all accounts, the SEC and DOL continue to be coordinated on fiduciary duty rulemaking. The agendas for the SEC and DOL both have circled September 2019 as the goal for a final SEC rule on standards of conduct and concomitant DOL guidance, most likely in the form of one or more prohibited transaction exemptions. Both the SEC and DOL could act sooner than September, though we expect the SEC rulemaking to precede any additional DOL guidance. Larry Stadulis interviewed with Citywire USA on the implications of these developments.
