Our Fiduciary Role
As a fee-only firm, we honor a strict fiduciary standard in all the work we do. A financial advisor who upholds the fiduciary standard occupies a position of special trust and confidence in their clients' financial lives. As a fiduciary, we are required to act with undivided loyalty to our clients. This includes disclosure of how we are compensated and any corresponding conflicts of interest.
As members of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), we are proud to follow the fiduciary oath as we work with clients to develop and maintain our trusted relationship.
The advisor shall exercise his/her best efforts to act in good faith and in the best interests of the client. The advisor shall provide written disclosure to the client prior to the engagement of the advisor, and thereafter throughout the term of the engagement, of any conflicts of interest, which will or reasonably may compromise the impartiality or independence of the advisor.
The advisor, or any party in which the advisor has a financial interest, does not receive any compensation or other remuneration that is contingent on any client’s purchase or sale of a financial product. The advisor does not receive a fee or other compensation from another party based on the referral of a client or the client’s business.
Following the NAPFA Fiduciary Oath means we will:
- Always act in good faith and with candor.
- Be proactive in disclosing any conflicts of interest that may impact a client.
- Not accept any referral fees or compensation contingent upon the purchase or sale of a financial product.
