WEBINAR: Proposed Fiduciary Rule: A Threat to Advisors and Investors

On October 31, 2023 The U.S. Department of Labor introduced its proposed retirement security rule updating the definition of an investment advice fiduciary under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. This proposed rule could jeopardize the retirement security of the very consumers it is intended to help. In fact, the DOL’s proposal is continuing to raise concerns among financial professionals, who point to issues such as higher litigation risk and rising compliance costs.

WEBINAR: Women & LTC: Finding Long-Term Care Solutions for This Important Market

Wednesday, October 25, 2023 – 1:00pm CT

Women make up more than half of the U.S. population (166 million) and control over $14 trillion in assets,1 which is why it’s important to understand their specific financial needs. Furthermore, an estimated 90% of those women will be solely responsible for their finances at some point in their lives. Women want and value financial advice, and as their lives change and needs evolve, you can offer them solutions and strategies to help, particularly those surrounding long-term care.
