ESG Investments and the Impact of Recent DOL Proposed Regulations on Retirement Plans
On this episode we discuss the new set of proposed regulations from the Department of Labor (DOL) providing guidance to retirement plan fiduciaries about investing plan assets in ESG Investment Vehicles. The group discusses what ESG investment are, what’s different about considering them for retirement plans, and what the DOL’s proposed regulations will do and what they wouldn’t. Finally, we talk about the reaction to the rules, how they impact retirement plans, and next steps for plan fiduciaries.
