Ep #4: Regulation and Legislation and Litigation (Oh My!) with Fred Reish
Fred Reish is a partner in Faegre Drinker’s Fiduciary Services ERISA team, where he focuses on fiduciary issues, prohibited transactions, tax qualification, and retirement income. On today's episode, Fred and I discuss recent regulatory developments like Regulation BI and the proposed DOL fiduciary advice rule that was announced at the end of June, and how these things impact plan sponsors and the industry in general, especially when it comes to rollovers. We talk about the SECURE Act and specifically the guidance around guaranteed income and multiple employer plans and pooled employer plans also known as MEPs and PEPs. We cover evolving litigation trends, specifically in the areas of cybersecurity and data privacy. And we also discuss recent DOL guidance on ESG and private equity investing for ERISA plans.
