Jeffrey Zients spoke about the Department of Labor’s proposed new rules to protect workers' retirement savings. The rules would be similar to but more flexible than a 2010 proposal that was withdrawn by the Labor Department after complaints from Wall Street institutions.

Following Mr. Zients' keynote speech, a panel of current and former regulators, financial officers, and lawyers participated in a discussion about the potential policies. They focused on the protections they could afford, and the potential unintended consequences that could result from their implementation. Former Representative Bentsen made concluding remarks.

“Champions, Critics and Consequences of a New Fiduciary Standard” was held at the Bipartisan Policy Center. close
