The Presentation
Representation of employee benefit fiduciaries, sponsors, and plans presents an assortment of ethical issues for practitioners. 
  • How far is too far in helping a client weigh the costs and benefits of a certain course of action? 
  • Is it always appropriate to rely on client-provided information without asking questions? 
  • Can inaction in the face of questionable client conduct pose ethical concerns for practitioners
During this informative webinar, our speaker, Ilene Ferenczy will present actual scenarios and provide insight into identifying the ethical considerations at play and arriving at an appropriate course of action.
