On August 31, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued a proposal to limit the ability of fiduciaries of private pensions to vote proxies. Fiduciaries would be prohibited from voting proxies or exercising other shareholder rights that affect retirement plans unless the matter has an economic impact on pension and 401(k) plans.
All CII members are welcome to participate in a webinar about the DOL proposal with Michael Kreps, a principal with the Groom Law Group. Michael specializes in issues relating to public policy, fiduciary responsibility, and plan funding and restructuring. He routinely represents both private and public sector clients before federal agencies and Congress. He will discuss the DOL’s proposed rule and share his perspective on what it means for private retirement plans and potentially for public pension systems. He will also address your questions and offer guidance on drafting comment letters on the proposal.
