What is a Breach of Fiduciary Duty?
Fiduciary duty refers to the ethical standards a stockbroker or anyone else in the financial industry must adhere to when handling a client’s money. In short, this means that a financial advisor or trusted financial professional will hold all of your best interests in mind when making decisions about your money. When your best interests are not kept in mind, a breach of this duty has occurred. When a breach of fiduciary duty occurs, you may be entitled to seek compensation through swift and aggressive legal action.
