About This Course:
Financial institutions that provide services to a plan often receive payments such as 12b-1 fees and administrative services fees, oftentimes called revenue sharing payments. The DOL finalized fee disclosures in 2012 and issued an advisory opinion in July 2013 requiring fiduciaries to increase scrutiny of revenue sharing arrangements.

In light of recent high profile, multi-million dollar settlements involving these agreements, fiduciaries must ramp up scrutiny during drafting and implementation.

Counsel to ERISA fiduciaries must also ensure that their arrangements do not include clauses that would cause the payments to be ERISA plan assets under the DOL advisory opinion guidance. If these payments are considered plan assets, any person authorized to manage them would be an ERISA fiduciary.

Additionally, whether or not revenue sharing payments are considered plan assets, counsel must ensure that fiduciaries engage in appropriate due diligence to avoid prohibited transaction rules and qualify for the exemption under 408(b)(2).

Listen as our authoritative panel reviews appropriate terms and enforcement of revenue sharing agreements, applicable due diligence in avoiding prohibited transaction rules, and best practices in dealing with excess payments.
