The Right Guidance for Fiduciaries
For a variety of reasons, many fiduciaries are ill informed
and poorly advised regarding their investment
responsibilities. We strive to help fiduciaries make better
and more prudent investment decisions.
Investors with fiduciary responsibility share a number of attributes…
- Foremost, they face personal legal liability for failure to properly discharge their functions.
- Third parties are dependent upon them to achieve financial goals.
- Fiduciaries must avoid conflicts of interest.
- They must control costs.
- They are obligated to consider passive asset class investing (indexing) as a default strategy.
- Fiduciaries must be able to demonstrate fidelity to a thoughtful process, through development of an investment policy statement (IPS), to avoid liability.
…and manifest a need for a certain character of advice:
- They would benefit from a fiduciary review.
- Fiduciaries should demand an independent, consultative—rather than sales or product-driven—approach.
- Their portfolios require ongoing due diligence and monitoring.
- They would benefit from an open architecture in avoiding conflicts of interest.
For all of these reasons, RightPath investments offers FiduciaryPlan™ to aid fiduciaries of all types in executing their responsibilities to the best of their abilities—and to legal requirements.
