“Fiduciary Duty Can’t Be Killed” – WealthManagement Op/Ed

On Wednesday (2/22/17), WealthManagement.com featured our op/ed on why the fiduciary rule can’t be killed and how efforts to stop the rule may only make it stronger. Read the entire op/ed here.

Key takeaways from the op/ed:

  1. While the potential scrapping of the fiduciary rule may have a short-term impact, investors will continue to migrate to advisors that provide a fiduciary level of care.
  2. Advisors that already meet the fiduciary duty of care have an advantage over those that do not.
  3. Robo-analyst technology is key to the success of wealth management practices because it makes diligence affordable.
