Unlike traditional broker/dealer relationships, Registered Investment Advisor’s are required to act in a Fiduciary capacity. The Fiduciary capacity is a higher standard of care, that at its core requires the Advisor to put the client’s interests ahead of their own interests at all times.
The only way that we are compensated, is through your fully disclosed management fee. In commission-based models offered by traditional brokers and similar financial intermediaries, those firms/employees are paid directly by the companies whose products they help to buy and sell. As you can imagine, that lends itself to conflicts of interests.
Unlike many who offer non-fiduciary advice, we actively seek the lowest-cost investment solutions among those available, to best help you meet your goals. Keeping the internal costs of investments as low as possible while attempting to lower correlations across investment solutions and maintaining liquidity.
