Board members at workSimply put, the term “fiduciary” applies to the more than five million individuals and institutions that have the legal responsibility for managing someone else’s money. A fiduciary is required by law to always act in the best interests of their client, beneficiary, or retirement plan participant. Yet, many fiduciaries are not even aware of their duties and responsibilities. In our current environment, fiduciary responsibility has become an extremely important, but confusing issue and the scrutiny the fiduciary undergoes is only going to rise.
