What Is a Fiduciary?
At the most basic level, a fiduciary is a trustee. In the world of financial planning and wealth management, the fiduciary standard demands that financial advisors put their clients’ needs above their own and that financial decisions on behalf of the client are made with careful analysis and comprehensive information.
Don’t All Financial Advisors Follow the Fiduciary Standard?
Unfortunately, the answer is no. Most people don’t know that the typical broker is held only to the suitability standard, which simply requires the broker to make “suitable” recommendations, regardless of whether that recommendation is in the client’s absolute best interests. You can rest easy knowing our team members at Ferguson-Johnson Wealth Management will always operate under the fiduciary standard.
