Is Your Investment Advisor Serving As A Fiduciary?

Before hiring an advisor for their services, it is important for you as an investor to inquire whether they are a fee-only, fiduciary advisor or not.

An advisor who is a true fiduciary will consistently maintain transparency and be open to discussing the matter. Advisors who are not fee-only or fiduciary could be either commission-only or fee-based. This implies that they might receive commissions by selling financial products to their clients. The situation is potentially problematic as it creates a situation where the advisor's recommendations may not prioritize their clients' interests.

Can you explain the distinction between a fiduciary and a non-fiduciary advisor? Let's explore how the role of a fiduciary financial advisor affects the advice you receive.

Advisors who receive payment solely from their clients for their rendered services can work without any contradictory interests. This means that they can work under the fiduciary standard, which requires them to act in the best interest of their clients. Financial advisors, bankers, attorneys, or public service officials have the option to commit to the fiduciary standard, which is a legal obligation.

A fiduciary advisor offers:

  •  They consistently prioritize their client's best interests before their own.
  •  They provide honest and fair advice based on their knowledge and expertise.
  • Exhibits wise decision-making skills in their behavior and recommendations.
  • Avoids conflicts of interest.
  • Discloses any material facts.
  • To help clients manage investment expenses so that they can utilize the majority of their investments based on their financial plan.
