Trucker Huss, APC is pleased to announce that Director Robert Gower has been selected to serve as a panelist for the American Bar Association (ABA) webinar “New Proposed ESG and Proxy Voting Guidance – Will it Change Plan Investments?” being held November 19, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PDT.
The webinar will explore The Department of Labor’s (DOL) proposed regulations that would specifically permit ERISA plan fiduciaries to take into account environmental, social and governance matters in making investment decisions and generally would require plan fiduciaries to vote proxies.
Panelists will discuss:
- how this proposed guidance will impact their fiduciary duties if the guidance is finalized in the current form;
- the history of the DOL’s guidance on ESG considerations and proxy voting matters;
- whether the proposed regulations, if finalized, are likely to change plan investments.
