A fiduciary is a person or corporation that acts on your behalf to manage your financial interests. The fiduciary financial advisors at Dechtman Wealth Management always act in your best interest to help you reach your financial goals. We take this legal responsibility seriously and commit to maintaining our fiduciary oath. 

The Fiduciary Oath 

Every fiduciary financial advisor at Dechtman Wealth Management adheres to the five principles of the fiduciary oath

We will always put our clients’ best interest first

We will act with prudence; that is, with the skill, care, diligence, and good judgment of a professional

We will not mislead clients and will provide conspicuous, full, and fair disclosure of all important facts

We will avoid conflicts of interest

We will fully disclose and fairly manage, in our clients’ favor, any unavoidable conflicts

Financial Advisor vs Fiduciary Advisor 

It is important to remember that not every financial advisor is also a fiduciary advisor. Unless an investment advisor is registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or a state securities regulator as a registered investment adivisor, or are a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional (CFP®) they are not held to the standards of the fiduciary oath. 

Stockbrokers, insurance agents, broker-dealers, and other standard financial advisors follow suitability obligations. This means these agents have to supply suitable recommendations to their clients but aren’t required to put clients’ best interests above their own. 

When you want financial advice that puts your money first, you need a fiduciary investment advisor. 

Choosing a Fiduciary Advisor 

To find the right fiduciary financial advisor for your needs, there are a few questions you can ask prospective agents:  

  • Who is directly managing my investments?
  • What is your track record?
  • What is your background? 
  • Who pays you?
  • Are you paid by the hour?
  • Are you legally bound to act in my best interests?

The long-term health and strength of your investments directly correlate with your financial advisor’s knowledge and skill. Take the time to find a fiduciary advisor who puts your financial needs first.
