What is a Fiduciary Financial Advisor?
Fiduciary responsibility is one of ethical, legal, and financial duty to—and only to—you, the client.
There are many positions that preclude a fiduciary duty, including, but not limited to:
- Board Members
- Corporate Officers
What separates a fiduciary from other financial advisories/consultant positions is that they are legally bound to put their client’s best interests ahead of their own. This is the same for fiduciaries across disciplines, whether they are trustees and corporate officers, board members and shareholders, executors and legatees, investors and clients, and so on.
More than anything, if you’re looking for a sound fiduciary to help with your financial planning, look for those who act in the best interests of their principals and values. Fiduciary responsibility is one of ethical, legal, and financial duty to, and only to, you, the client. A few qualities and questions to look/ask for in a good fiduciary can include:
- Regulatory and/or disciplinary history
- Previous experience and client satisfaction
- Level of knowledge and/or expertise
- Personal or professional affiliations or relationships
- Compensation structure
