What is Fiduciary Duty?

Fiduciary duty represents the highest degree of trust and confidence.  In fact, the investment advisor has a duty to act in the client’s best interest. Investment Advisors are governed by the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and applicable state securities laws. These laws govern conduct and disclosure requirements, creating a high legal standard referred to as ‘Fiduciary.’
