The economic consequences of the US Department of Labor's proposed new fiduciary standard
This study focuses on the economic impact of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposed fiduciary rule for retirement advice on the independent financial services industry and investors who rely on independent advice. It estimates the DOL’s proposed rule will cost the independent financial services industry and investors nearly $3.9 billion in total startup costs to implement the rule – nearly 20 times DOL’s preferred cost estimate—and suggests that, if the rule is implemented, only high net-worth investors will be able to access and afford professional retirement investment advice.
