Joint Trades Letter to Department of Labor

On April 21, 2015, 16 financial trade associations representing the breadth of the financial services industry (Associations) in the United States jointly submitted a letter to the Department of Labor requesting that the Department extend the public comment submission period for an additional 45-days for the recently-released Conflict of Interest Rule and Related Exemptions. The Associations noted the 75-day comment period is inadequate to address the “far-reaching modifications that will be required to meet the conditions to the exemptive relief that the Department perceives as important” to protect the interests of retirement investors. As the Associations noted, “a 120-day comment period would lead to more thoughtful and comprehensive input, which will ultimately increase the possibility for a more workable final rule that would benefit all parties.”
