In this video, we discuss the importance of Fisher Investments’ responsibility as a fiduciary. In the financial services industry, a fiduciary is a person or business legally obligated to put clients’ interests first when making investment decisions for them. This is a differentiating feature of Fisher Investments. Not everyone providing financial advice is a fiduciary. Brokers, for example, aren’t held to the fiduciary rule, which enables them to sell commissioned products that aren’t necessarily in the client’s best interests. At Fisher Investments, we take our fiduciary responsibility very seriously. Not only are we legally required to put the client’s interests first, but our whole business is also structured around it—because we understand the foundation of a good client-adviser relationship is trust. We don’t receive commissions on trades in client’s portfolios, and we don’t sell financial products. We even separate out client services from the portfolio decision makers to avoid potential conflicts of interests. Meaning, our clients benefit from a dedicated service professional who regularly keeps them informed about their portfolios and is always available to discuss any questions or concerns without having an agenda or product to sell.

Jill Hitchcock: In the most basic sense, a fiduciary is someone who acts on behalf of someone else. As it relates to the investment world, a fiduciary would typically be someone who is making investment decisions on behalf of another person.

Michael Hanson: I think to be a fiduciary means in simple terms, to put the clients first.  It means to avoid conflicts of interest, to think or our clients’ best interests first and above all else.

Jill Hitchcock: When Ken Fisher started the firm 40 years ago, it was important to him from day one to build a firm that would always put clients’ best interests first and to structure it so that legally and ethically we are bound to always do what’s right for our clients.
