ARLINGTON, VA – The National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA) is pleased to announce its list of 100 Top Defined Contribution (DC) Wholesalers, as selected by the nation’s leading retirement plan advisors.

This year’s list drew an overwhelming response – nearly a third more than the previous year’s record response.  Finalists for this recognition were selected based on votes cast by several thousand advisors from a list of more than 500 wholesalers nominated by NAPA Firm Partner recordkeepers and DCIOs.

The American Retirement Association’s Government Affairs Committee has filed comments with the Department of Labor regarding a proposed regulation to extend by 60 days the applicability date for the “Conflicted Advice” regulation.

The ARA recommends that the applicability date be delayed until Jan. 1, 2018, and that transitional relief with regard to the Best Interest Contract Exemption (BICE) be extended until July 1, 2018.
