Fiduciary Simplicity


“Under ERISA and the Code, a person is a fiduciary to a plan or IRA to the extent that the person engages in specified plan activities, including rendering ‘‘investment advice for a fee or other compensation, direct or in direct, with respect to any moneys or other property of such plan.”

“In particular, under this standards-based approach, the Adviser and Financial Institution must give prudent advice that is in the customer’s best interest, avoid misleading statements, and receive no more than reasonable compensation.”

Is there any reason why a person seeking retirement guidance, from someone receiving compensation for providing that guidance, should have some other expectation?
