What is a Fiduciary?

The Fiduciary Standard

Did you know that different advisors are held to different standards? Only advisors who hold the title Investment Advisor Representatives have a legal, fiduciary responsibility to act in their clients best interests. Other advisors are held to a different standard known as the “suitability” standard, meaning that as long as they do what is deemed “suitable,” they are fully within their legal rights to act in their best interest and their company’s best interest before those of their clients.
