ASA Statement on Department of Labor Fiduciary Rulemaking

WASHINGTON, DC – The American Securities Association (ASA) today issued the following statement from President & CEO Chris Iacovella on the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Retirement Security Rule, amending the definition of an investment advice fiduciary under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act:


“The Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule sequel is just as bad as the original, and just as likely to meet the same fate in court. The Department's rushed rulemaking process will threaten retirement savings and limit access for millions of hardworking Americans. ASA will assess the rule and work with our members to determine how to protect the interests of America’s investors, including potential litigation.”
