Featuring Celent senior analyst Will Trout and Seismic VP and GM of financial services Craig Dunham, webinar will detail the technologies and processes helping firms adapt to the DOL Rule
San Diego, CA – October 28, 2016 – Seismic, the leading enterprise-grade sales enablement solution, today announced that they are hosting “All Hands on Deck: Technology’s Role in the Scramble to Comply with the DOL Fiduciary Rule,” a joint webinar with research and advisor firm Celent. Taking place on Monday, November 14 at 1:00pm ET, the webinar will be co-hosted by Celent senior analyst Will Trout and Seismic VP an GM of financial services Craig Dunham.
The DOL Fiduciary Rule intends to protect retirement savers and investors from advisors’ backdoor payments and hidden fees by expanding the definition of “fiduciary” under the ERISA. Approved in early April, the new rule has had a major impact on the financial services landscape, with many wealth management firms beginning to alter how they guide advisors and what products they offer.
“All Hands on Deck” will detail this current regulatory environment as it pertains to wealth management and the resulting operational and financial challenges facing firms. Trout and Dunham will provide an overview of the solutions that some firms have begun to put in place to mitigate these challenges and what the future looks like in this new era of increased regulation and technology.
“While the DOL Rule presents a set of challenges to wealth management firms, for those that implement the right technologies and plan accordingly, it also presents an incredible opportunity,” said Dunham. “Those that prepare in advance will be able to capitalize on a market that some competitors are leaving, and webinar attendees will be presented with the first steps they need to take to do so.”
