Teleconference: ERISA Plan Fee Disclosures
Paul Hastings is proud to host a teleconference:
ERISA Plan Fee Disclosures
Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at 9am PST/ 11am CST/ 12pm EST
The U.S. Department of Labor has adopted and proposed a slew of new regulatory and other initiatives over the past nine months aimed at increasing the transparency of direct and indirect fees and other compensation paid to service providers associated with ERISA plan investments. These changes are of consequence to both plan sponsors and plan service providers, as well as sponsors of investment funds in which ERISA plans invest. One of the most significant changes from present law is that these reporting and disclosure rules will reach into compensation arrangements paid by mutual funds, hedge funds, and some private equity and real estate funds, regardless of whether such funds are otherwise subject to ERISA regulation.
These regulations and other changes come on the heels of a recent wave of 401(k) fee-related litigation so also may have relevance to such lawsuits. While many open questions remain, plan fiduciaries and service providers must come to grips with these changes and devise programs to ensure compliance.
Join our distinguished panel of Paul Hastings ERISA and investment fund specialists at our September ERISA Forum teleconference to address these and other important aspects of the new ERISA reporting and disclosure requirements.
Our one-hour, complimentary ERISA Litigation Forum teleconference will focus on hot-button employee-benefit-litigation issues and their practical significance.
There will be time for Q&As following the teleconference.
