The April 2015 edition of “Your Trusted Source” features the following topics:

  • The quarterly Investment Watch newsletter written by Ekon President, Keith Kowalczyk.
  • Since the signing of ERISA, the pension landscape has changed drastically, leading the DOL to propose a new definition of Fiduciary in 2010. It’s been five years - Is a new Fiduciary definition on the horizon? We review the perspectives of both supporters and adversaries as the DOL prepares to propose a new definition.
  • Employer Structures? Ownership? Controlling Interest? Oh my! Employer Structures can be confusing but understanding them is crucial to qualified plan administration. This is why we are splitting the topic into a multi-part series entitled Understanding Employer Structures. Check out Part 1: Controlled Groups.

Check out the April Your Trusted Source Newsletter for these topics and more.
