In April of 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) released its final rule that greatly expands the DOL’s definition of “fiduciary” to apply to a broad range of advisors and broker-dealers who work with retirement related accounts.

Even advisors who currently meet the fiduciary standard will face new documentation and operational requirements.
