Background — 2020 has ushered in possibly historic changes to the financial advice landscape. The Securities and Exchange Commission issued Regulation Best Interest along with other rules and interpretations. The Dept. of Labor has proposed a new rule. Private self-regulation has also changed with the CFP Board embracing new standards. These changes raise questions about the future of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, and previously accepted norms for fiduciary advice. In this program, four leading law professors share their views on these developments and what they mean for financial advice in 2020.
