What Does This Mean?
A broker’s fiduciary duty is very important to creating a relationship based on trust between the investor and the broker. Investors would not be able to leave their money with another individual if they could not trust that it would be taken care of. The only reason that this trust exists is because brokers are bound by their fiduciary duty to always act in the customer’s best financial interests. Brokers who breach this duty work toward the erosion of that trust and the eventual downfall of the broker/investor relationship.
