No investor should compromise. Your advisor should be legally and morally bound to act in your best interest while managing your assets. The most reputable financial advisors are fiduciaries.
Studies show1 that investors who seek advice from fiduciary advisors earn higher returns, increase financial security, confidence, and clarity than those who go it alone.
