What Is a Fiduciary Advisor? What Is a Retirement Advisor?
A fiduciary advisor is legally obligated to give you advice which is in your best interest at all times, even if neither they nor their firm profits in any way. You come first, and that’s the way we like it at APO. Additionally, a fiduciary advisor has to do their background research and give you the “why” or explanation behind the recommendations they give to you.
A retirement advisor specializes in the time of life involved with distribution rather than accumulation of assets. A very young person might be advised to “buy and hold” and wait through a stock market downturn. A person in retirement needs every dollar, and market volatility and “sequence of returns” risk can wipe out their money like we saw in 2008. Retirement requires a completely different approach.
