ACLI On White House Announcement On Fiduciary Regulation

ACLI President and CEO Dirk Kempthorne issued the following statement today:


Washington, D.C. (February 6, 2017) – “The American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) is pleased with the White House announcement calling for the Department of Labor to review the fiduciary regulation.

“It is urgent the Department of Labor grant a delay in the application of the regulation, given the significant and harmful impact of the regulation on the ability of Americans to save for a financially secure retirement.

“Life insurers are proud to act in the best interest of consumers. We look forward to working with the administration and Congress on public policies that support efforts to that end.”
