There is a lot of talk about whether President-elect Trump will stop the DoL Fiduciary Rule. As Michael Kitces mentioned in his column last week:
“Because the reality is that while the rule will not be enforced until next April – after President Trump takes office – the regulation itself became official this past April. And the President doesn’t have the power to just immediate enact a massive change to an existing regulation.”
Therefore, it is my recommendation that you continue to prepare for the April 2017 enforcement date. To wait, could be at your own peril.
