Aren’t All Wealth Managers Supposed to Work in My Best Interest?

No. Not in this country.

Your doctor and your lawyer are held to a very high standard. They are bound by oath to act in your best interests, so shouldn’t you have the same expectation of your financial advisor?

You should.

As an SEC registered investment advisory firm, our wealth strategists at W&A are bound by the fiduciary duty to act in your best interests. Our investment selections are based on making the best decisions for you, not the most profitable decisions for us.

So why wouldn’t a financial advisor be a fiduciary? Is it so they can sell you products? Interesting. Check with your current investment advisor. Are they working in your best interests?

Financial plans change. Investment returns, tax strategies, estate laws, families, and health conditions vary. With so many moving parts, having a trusted advisor is essential.

Three Questions Prospective Clients Should Ask Of Their Financial Advisor:

1. Have you ever had any arbitration issues? Or any disciplinary actions levied against you?
(We at W&A have never experienced either.)
2. How do you get paid?
(In our model, W&A seeks to provide unbiased investment advice, and only gets paid by the client.)
3. Do you own what you are recommending to me?
(Yes, we do. W&A invests our personal capital in the same investment models we recommend for clients.)
