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.
The Institute submitted a comment letter to the DOL on January 2nd, arguing that Rule opponents seek to eliminate fiduciary advice.
