On Feb. 3, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that directed the Department of Labor (DOL) to do a cost-benefit analysis of the fiduciary rule, leaving both financial firms and retirees asking, “Will the fiduciary rule be delayed?”
Originally, the rule was supposed to go into effect on April 10 — just over a month away.
But before that happens, the Trump administration wants to know:
Whether the rule has harmed or is likely to harm investors due to its provisionsWhich ways it has resulted in disruptions within the retirement service industry that may also affect investors or retireesWhether it is likely to cause an increase in litigation and prices for retirement services
To that end, the DOL kicked off its investigative process last Wednesday, when the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released its review of the proposed delay on Feb. 28.
