About the Course

A professional fiduciary is sometimes reticent to accept clients with substantial investment portfolios, as he or she is intimidated by the prospect of fulfilling the responsibility of monitoring the investment portfolio. Perhaps even more worrisome, he or she may worry about finding a financial advisor who understands how to comply with fiduciary investment law and who he or she simply feels can be trusted. This webinar will help you overcome that challenge by teaching you how to find a knowledgeable advisor and by helping you understand how the financial industry operates.

Attendees will acquire tools for evaluating the ethical standards of a financial advisor. They will understand the potential conflict of interest between the "suitability standard" that applies to the brokerage industry versus the much higher fiduciary standard that applies to fiduciaries and registered investment advisors. They will learn how to interview financial advisors and identify those with the knowledge and competence to manage fiduciary portfolios in compliance with the laws regulating fiduciary investing. They will understand the difference between the advisor they work with, his or her broker/dealer, and the "custodial firm" that may hold the person’s assets.
