ERISA Update for Investment Advisers and Fund Managers

Investment advisers and fund managers who manage or provide advice regarding employee benefit plan assets need to navigate the requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). In this Coffee Chat, we will address the ERISA litigation landscape for investment advisers and fund managers and the application to investment advisers and fund managers of the Department of Labor’s new guidance regarding cybersecurity to protect participant data and plan assets, permissible consideration of environment, social and governance (ESG) factors in making investment decisions, and when advice to participants makes an adviser a fiduciary under ERISA.

Topics include:

  • ERISA Litigation Landscape
  • DOL Cybersecurity Best Practices
  • Proposed ESG Rule
  • Participant Investment Advice Fiduciary Guidance
