What Does This Mean?

Securities brokers are a brand of financial advisors known as fiduciaries. These individuals have what is known as a fiduciary duty to always act in the best financial interests of their customers. Securities brokers breach this duty when they choose investments for their customers that are beneficial to them (the broker) at the expense of their customers. The only reason the relationship between brokers and investors can even exist is because of trust. Investors could not trust their hard earned money with another individual if they did not trust that it would be taken care. Brokers who breach this fiduciary duty work toward the erosion of that trust and the eventual downfall of the investor/broker relationship.
