Preparing for the DOL Fiduciary Rule

The Fiduciary Rule is Here

Beginning June 9, 2017, all advisors and financial institutions providing investment advice must comply with the Impartial Conduct Standards of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Fiduciary Rule, which includes the requirement to only provide advice that is in the Best Interest of a retirement investor (Please review the DOL FAQs for more detailed information regarding the applicability and enforcement dates of certain requirements under the rule).

At Envestnet, we are committed to powering the future of advice. Our comprehensive fiduciary compliance solutions are here to help you stay ahead of the curve and capitalize on the fiduciary opportunity to provide a higher standard of care that clients are increasingly expecting.

The fiduciary standard aligns interests of the advisor and the client. The advisor must give best interest advice—prudent advice that is based on investment objectives, risk tolerance, financial circumstances, and the needs of the client. With the Envestnet platform capabilities well-positioned for a fiduciary environment, we are ready to help you through this change to not only comply with the rule, but to thrive under the rule and potentially take market share.
