Fulfilling a Fiduciary Obligation is not a solitary achievement but one that is habitually executed. It can only be defined as a virtuous act of both trust and accountability made visible when someone has placed their client’s goals before their own. But is it also a virtuous expectation?
Many professions have to be practiced with standards of excellence that originate through evidence based evaluation of judgment. It is reasonable to conclude that a client of someone calling themselves a Financial Advisor would expect that these moral and virtuous standards are executed by putting their interests in the forefront. Who else’s goal is to be actualized?!
Is there really any other way to help people reach their goals and/or another expectation that a client should have?
