Despite the brokerage industry’s praise, Regulation Best Interest is nowhere near as strong as the fiduciary standard.
Welcome to the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard
The principles underlying "liberty and justice for all" have inspired the American journey for generations. In finance and advice, this journey leads to a North Star called the fiduciary standard.
The Institute for the Fiduciary Standard is a champion for investors. Our programs and papers teach investors and advisors about what the fiduciary standard means. All investors want an advisor they can trust. Helping investors find a real fiduciary advisor is our mission.
