What's the difference between an investment fiduciary and a stockbroker? An investment fiduciary is typically an independent business owner required to act in the best interest of his clients. A stockbroker is typically a sales representative and employee of a bank or brokerage firm who can sell whatever is "suitable" to his clients. The fiduciary is held to a higher standard. Make sure your advisor is a fiduciary. Our video further explains the differences and what it can mean to you as an investor.
