A new project in the works to ensure compliance with the Labor Department's Conflict of Interest Final Rule, commonly known as the fiduciary rule, will significantly change TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.'s business model, Executive Vice President and CFO Stephen Boyle said during an industry conference in London.
"We have a project underway to look at [the fiduciary rule] both from a compliance perspective as well as an opportunistic perspective," Boyle said. Although he did not provide additional color on the program, he said more details will be revealed during the company's next earnings conference call.
