DOL proposed rule requires retirement plan advice ‘in investor’s best interest’


The Biden administration on Oct. 31 proposed requiring financial advisors working on retirement-plan accounts to act in the best interests of investors, not the companies that create investment products.

EBSA will enforce the rule if it becomes final, probably in 2024.
