DOL Issues Final Rule Amending QPAM Exemption

April 15, 2024

On April 3, 2024, the Department of Labor (DOL) released its final rule amending Prohibited Transaction Exemption 84-14 (PTE 84-14). PTE 84-14 exempts from ERISA’s prohibited transaction rules certain transactions between parties in interest and plans managed by a Qualified Professional Asset Manager (QPAM) when the conditions of the exemption are met.[1] The final rule (1) expands the type of conduct that will render a QPAM ineligible to rely on the exemption, (2) provides for a transition period in which to cease conducting transactions that are no longer exempt if a QPAM becomes ineligible for the exemption, (3) requires that QPAMs register with the DOL and (4) increases certain AUM and equity thresholds necessary for QPAM qualification. The final rule also attempts to provide clarity as to the extent to which a QPAM must be involved in a transaction in order to take advantage of the exemption and adds certain recordkeeping requirements.
