The fate of the DOL fiduciary rule may not yet be determined but the rule’s influence on the industry has already been cast in terms of where and how service providers and financial advisors can offer rollover advice. Many investors are being left to their own devices when deciding if, when and where to move their former DC plan assets. The direct line of communication between IRA providers and investors is more critical than ever.
