Most of the public has NO IDEA about the difference between the "fiduciary standard" and the "suitability rule" that apply to different financial professionals. Here are three helpful links from other companies to help explain why this is so important: 1) http://www.investopedia.com/articles/professionaleducation/11/suitability-fiduciary-standards.asp 2) http://www.bankrate.com/finance/investing/fiduciary-standard-1.aspx 3)http://www.psafinancial.com/2012/12/fiduciary-vs-suitability-investment-advisors-vs-brokers/
This video is intended to help shed light on that important difference between a fiduciary (also known as an independent, private wealth advisor) and a broker (who often call themselves a "financial advisor") from a big bank or wirehouse brokerage firm.
