The DOL fiduciary standard rule aims to ensure that financial advice is in the best interest of retirement investors. As a financial professional, how are you preparing for this rule which takes effect on June 9, 2017?

We've devised a couple of potential paths for you to ensure compliance with the DOL fiduciary standard rule. Both Investment Adviser Representatives (IARs) and CFP® Professionals are already held to a fiduciary or "best interest" standard, and therefore, are both good options as the financial industry evolves with this new rule.
