FolioDynamix Hosts April 26 Webinar to Help Firms Prepare for DOL Fiduciary Rule Change

Experts to Share Details on Mitigating Risk While Taking Advantages of Opportunities within Compliance Culture

FolioDynamix, a leading provider of wealth management technology and advisory services, today announced that it will host a webinar titled “Success in the Wake of the DOL Fiduciary Rule” on Tuesday, April 26 at 4:00 p.m. ET.  The complimentary webinar will present experts on the just-released regulation to share insights and guidance around how firms can not only survive but thrive within the industry’s new culture of compliance.

“The DOL Fiduciary Rule change finds many financial services firms working to put steps and solutions in place to help advisors affected by the expansion of the ‘best interest standards’ to individual retirement accounts and 401(k) rollovers,” says Steve Dunlap, president of FolioDynamix.  “There was a great deal of discussion in advance of the regulation with firms and advisors unclear as to what would pass; now that the rule has been finalized, our goal is to help wealth management firms navigate this new environment while minimizing the cost increases resulting from compliance to the rule.”

FolioDynamix will host this webinar with experts including Dunlap and President of FDx Advisors, Shari Hensrud, as well as Cary Kvitka, Stephen Galletto and Max Schatzow, authorities on the DOL rule from Stark & Stark’s Securities Group. The panel will discuss the impact of the new rule on the industry at large, how to mitigate compliance risks following the roll out and even given wide-ranging concerns about the threats to the industry at large, where opportunities might lie for financial services firms.  Though the final regulation did offer longer timeframes for compliance, as well as less draconian approach to the “Best Interest Client Exemption,” the focus on the fiduciary standard remains. The panelists will discuss how firms should prepare now to succeed going forward in an environment where the shift to advisory business is becoming almost inevitable.

In addition to this webcast, FolioDynamix is offering additional tools to support firms and advisors in this effort.  In partnership with industry research group Beacon Strategies, LLC, FolioDynamix has created a high-level whitepaper on the DOL fiduciary rule to help firms and advisors drill down to the actual impact of the regulation. FolioDynamix is also offering a complimentary “DOL Risk Exposure Assessment,” during which an FDX Advisors analyst will spend time with a firm to run through their retirement business and offer suggestions to allow firms to meet the regulations by the deadline.

Registration for “Success in the Wake of the DOL Fiduciary Rule” is free; visit  the DOL Fiduciary Rule Solutions page to download webcast information.
