Highlights

Over the past two years, the DOL Fiduciary rule has consumed much of the industry’s attention. At LIMRA, we have been studying the implications of the rule. Please join us on Thursday, August 3, noon ET as LIMRA CEO Bob Kerzner and one of LIMRA Secure Retirement Institute’s leading researchers, Jafor Iqbal, share what we have learned.
