Brokerage vs. Fiduciary: Prioritizing Your Best Interests
When entrusting your financial well-being to an advisor, it’s important to understand the difference between a brokerage and a fiduciary. A brokerage typically earns commissions by buying and selling financial products, which can create conflicts of interest when they recommend specific investments. Keep in mind that these conflicts can be acceptable if they are disclosed to you. Despite the conflicts being disclosed, the brokerage firm's primary focus may not always align with what's best for you.
On the other hand, a fiduciary, like AWM&T, places your interests at the forefront. We don't earn commissions, and our commitment is unwavering when it comes to acting in your best interest. AWM&T cannot disclaim that duty away. This means that every financial decision and recommendation we make is geared toward helping you achieve your financial goals without any hidden agendas.
