PLANADVISER Weekend Newsdash
Week ending February 5th, 2016
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Happy Friday PLANADVISER readers! This week’s editor’s choice kicks off with some lighter fare—a look at star quarterback Payton Manning’s own imminent retirement and the health of NFL players' pension plan. The plan, like many sponsored by private employers in the U.S., is struggling with a low funded status and other challenges. The week gone by also had plenty of news related to the DOL's forthcoming fiduciary rule and the wider regulatory and market environment marked by stubborn bouts of volatility.
