Comments to Department of Labor on Rule Limiting ESG Investments

The Department of Labor proposed a rule that would impose limitations on investors’ ability to choose investments in Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) strategies. We worked with the Environmental Defense Fund to submit comments focusing on the proposal’s flaws. The Department provides insufficient evidence for the rule, understates costs, and deprives retirement plan beneficiaries of a broad range of investment alternatives that reflect legitimate perspectives on markets.
