Registered Investment Advisers, such as Modera, are held to a fiduciary standard of care. As your fiduciary, we are legally obligated and personally committed to maintaining an allegiance of confidentiality, trust, loyalty, and disclosure to you. We place your interests first and act in your best interest at all times. We have no hidden fees, incentives, or compensation that may prevent us from providing advice in your best interest.
And no, unlike the advisers at Modera, not all financial professionals are fiduciaries. Before you entrust someone to manage your money you may want to ask if they act in a fiduciary capacity.
