Best Practices Initiative

The fiduciary standard has been called “the highest standard under the law.” The best practices will reflect broad fiduciary duties in accordance with common law, statute, regulatory opinions, and the Advisers Act of 1940. The best practices will also reflect the high aspirations for the fiduciary standard expressed in the landmark Supreme Court decision, SEC vs Capital Gains Research. The starting point for the Best Practices Board deliberations is the Institute’s paper, Six Core Fiduciary Duties for Financial Advisors.
