ERISA plans are major investors in a constantly evolving financial marketplace. Both financial firms designing and selling financial products and plans purchasing financial products need to understand the inner workings of the products in order to analyze them under ERISA and ensure compliance. This course provides an in-depth look at the nuts and bolts of various financial instruments and investment vehicles and the ERISA issues that arise in connection with them. With each focusing on a different type of common plan investment, our panels of capital markets and ERISA experts will explore the interaction between ERISA and the Code and how financial products and markets actually work.
What You Will Learn
Alternating on a yearly basis with ERISA Fiduciary Investment Basics, this course will provide a more intensive "dive" into the many complicated investment structures available to plans and the application of the ERISA fiduciary rules to them. Between the two courses, you will be prepared to analyze the issues arising under ERISA in connection with financial products and to advise fiduciaries and financial firms on compliance.
Jones Day Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation partner Laura Bader will speak on a panel entitled "Alternative Investment Vehicles."
