What a sweep by Dems could mean for DoL guidance

An analysis of what a sweep by Democrats of Congress and the presidency could mean for the prospect of 401(k) money in PE.

In this analysis piece, Chris Witkowsky, outlines what a sweep by the Democrats, in which they take both the presidency and the Senate, could mean for the future of 401(k) investment in PE. Although a new administration and Dem-controlled Congress may have other priorities to tackle that take primacy over suspicion of private equity, the Department of Labor’s recent guidance, effectively opening up the PE gates to 401(k) plans, is also fairly vulnerable, Chris writes.
