Keynote, U.S. Department of Labor
In the last few years, the Department of Labor has shown an increased focus on regulating rollovers and 401(k) plan investments. Recently, the DOL has issued proposed regulations related to when an asset manager can serve as a “qualified plan asset manager” (“QPAM”) and has proposed revisions to the process that asset managers use when applying for individual exemptions. Director Chris Cosby of EBSA’s Office of Exemption Determinations will be discussing in these and other developments with Kevin Walsh of Groom Law Group. The Office of Exemption Determinations is the office within EBSA responsible for analyzing applications for class exemptions, and major individual exemptions related thereto, preparing Federal Register notices, reviewing petitions for good faith waivers of section 502(l) penalties, drafting advisory opinions and information letters regarding class exemptions. For asset managers who take on fiduciary status, or who are subjected to fiduciary status due to legal changes, having an exemption strategy is a key piece of any strategy for engaging with the retirement marketplace.
