In light of the disruptions to normal business operations brought about by efforts to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is considering a possible delay in the June 30, 2020 implementation/effective date for compliance with the Commission’s new Regulation Best Interest, which establishes a heightened “best interest” standard of care for broker-dealers and their registered representatives. (In a related matter, the SEC has changed the deadline for BD firms to file their Forms ADV from March 30, 2020 to June 30, 2020.) Although no final decision has been made, the topic has been discussed by SEC leadership. NAIFA has submitted a letter to the SEC requesting a reasonable delay in the Reg BI implementation/effective date, which you can review here.
