Nationwide to Offer Education Series on Fiduciary Rule

The firm will hold both local events and webcasts featuring its own and outside experts.

To help retirement plan advisers navigate the new Department of Labor (DOL) fiduciary rule, Nationwide Retirement Institute is launching an educational series featuring experts from Nationwide as well as two leading attorneys from Drinker Biddle & Reath, Fred Reish and Brad Campbell. 

The series will take the form of both local events and webcasts, as well as a new Nationwide website dedicated to the new fiduciary rule. The website will help advisers determine whether they are a fiduciary and, if so, how the new rule will impact their practice.

The first webcast, which took place on June 14, gave an overview of the regulatory landscape. The next one, to be held September 13, will delve further into the new regulation and its potential impact.

“Nationwide has always been a trusted partner for information, and we want to continue that tradition of simplifying complex issues for our partners,” says Kevin McGarry, director of the Nationwide Retirement Institute. “Our goal is to support advisers as best as possible, so they can focus their attention on building client relationships and minimizing service disruptions while working to comply with the new regulation.”
