These advisors are held to a fiduciary standard...is yours?
“While there are many different models for delivering
financial services to clients, frankly the fiduciary
model is the only one I could ever even consider
Thomas W. Batterman, JD, CTFA
“By holding to a fiduciary standard for my clients, I
have launched my role in our relationship from that
of a typical ‘advisor’ to that of a true ‘partner’. This
has helped me fulfill my desire to serve my clients.”
Michael Collie, CFP, CFPN, CMFC
THE FIDUCIARY QUESTIONNAIRE
NAPFA believes that consumers can be empowered to select the financial advisor who will help them achieve their goals. We have developed numerous tools and resources that you can use during your selection process.
The Fiduciary Questionnaire is a one-page assessment of whether your financial advisor will act in your Fiduciary interest. The Fiduciary Questionnaire addresses topics such as your advisor’s compensation, existing and potential conflicts of interest, and outside business interests.
Download the Fiduciary Questionnaire and ask your financial advisor (or prospective advisor) to fill it out completely. Based on his/her answers, you will better understand whether or not your advisor holds to a Fiduciary Standard and will put your interests first.
