Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide ERISA and benefits counsel with an update on current regulatory and marketplace developments in CITs in retirement and other benefit plans. The panel will discuss the impact of recent litigation on collective investment trusts and outline compliance and risk mitigation strategies.

Description

Collective investment trusts (CITs) are an increasingly popular investment vehicle for 401(k) and other retirement plans.

Recent legal and regulatory developments have created new opportunities as well as challenges. Department of Labor regulations, effective November 2011, place new disclosure requirements on collective trusts sold to retirement plans.

In addition, fee litigation involving plan fiduciaries continues to be an issue.

Listen as our panel of ERISA and financial services attorneys provides an update on current regulatory and marketplace developments relating to CITs. The panel will also discuss the impact of recent litigation on collective investment trusts and outline compliance and risk mitigation strategies.
