Fiduciary Foundations

Fiduciary Foundations

The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed new fiduciary rules to govern when investment advice is given on retirement assets. The ruling includes IRA rollovers, small Defined Contribution plans, HSAs, qualified annuities, and other retirement products. The final rules will be in effect starting April 2017.

To meet the needs of the DOL fiduciary rule, and to capitalize on the revenue opportunities available, North Highland has created a holistic and structured approach to quickly implement the changes. We focus on the advisor and client experience to differentiate our clients from firms who focus only on compliance.
