A fiduciary standard of care means a financial professional must act in their client’s best interest. It’s the sort of standard many expect to receive when they interact with a financial professional.
The term is used by financial professionals – at times, with a caveat. Some act on their client’s behalf some of the time, but might not while performing other job duties. The result can be confusing. Make sure you review a financial professional’s Form ADV to get a better handle on when your financial professional is acting as a fiduciary, and in what capacity.
