OMB Approves 18-Month Fiduciary Rule Delay, With ‘Change’

It’s Not Them, It’s You: Millennials Demand a New Business Model

A week after the Labor Department filed to begin a 15-day comment period regarding the 18-month delay of its fiduciary rule’s most onerous provisions, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is urging Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta to fully implement the rule in light of recent remarks by financial and insurance company CEOs.

In her Tuesday letter to Acosta, Warren cites recent earnings calls in which the CEOs state they are “prepared to comply with the rule in its current form and that many believe it to be in the best interests of their customers.”

Warren also told Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton in a separate letter the same day to “review this evidence” as the SEC solicits public comment on Labor’s rule as well as a potential uniform fiduciary rule of its own.
