WINDSOR, Conn., Jan. 26, 2017 – LIMRA is pleased to announce that CNBC contributor Todd Buchholz will be one of the keynote speakers at LIMRA’s 2017 Distribution Conference for Financial Services in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla, on March 1-3.

According to the latest LIMRA Secure Retirement Institute research, 1 in 3 independent distribution networks (i.e., brokerage general agencies and independent marketing organizations) expect a significant impact from the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule on their business. Buchholz will provide a Washington DC insiders’ view of what the new Administration may do to affect the implementation of the DOL fiduciary rule. 

“There is a lot of uncertainty about if the Republican-led Congress and the new Administration will delay or alter the DOL rule,” said Sean O’Donnell, LIMRA vice president, member relations and sales. “Getting Todd’s perspective will be invaluable to distribution leaders as they focus their strategy for 2017, and beyond.”

The conference features other speakers who will discuss the impact of the DOL fiduciary rule:

In addition to the regulatory landscape, this year’s conference will also focus on innovation and digitally-minded tactics to help expand distribution. There will be sessions specifically centered on communicating direct-to-consumers (D2C) through new and popular non-face-to-face distribution methods to reach new markets.

The 2017 Distribution Conference for Financial Services usually draws more than 300 distribution leaders and professionals for opportunities to network and share ideas around productivity and reshaping the industry.
