The Morning After the Fiduciary Reg

News summary by MFWire's editors

Everybody's talking about the revised fiduciary regulation that came out yesterday. You probably haven't yet read through the full 208 pages of the proposal, nevermind the 317 pages for the best interest contract exemption (BICE), the 192 pages for the class exemption for principal transactions, the 30 pages for the first prohibited transaction exemption amendment, the 105 pages for the second prohibited transaction exemption amendment, 54 pages for the class exemption amendments, the 117 pages for the third prohibited transaction exemption amendment, or the 395 pages for the regulatory impact analysis. That's 1,418 pages in all, not counting the technical appendices to the regulatory impact analysis.

Michael Colangelo
Department of Labor
Chief of Staff
