Fiduciary Duty and Conflicts of Interest

September 25, 2012 at 6:13 pm Leave a comment

The issues of conflicts of interest in regards to fiduciary duty is discussed in an article, “Why Nobody Likes Stinky Pete: What Conflict-of-Interest Means to Investors”, by Christopher Carosa, CTFA, located at http://fiduciarynews.com/2012/09/why-nobody-likes-stinky-pete-what-conflict-of-interest-means-to-investors/.  I particularly like his example of the difference in cost to investors who buy mutual funds directly versus through brokers.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!   Please sign up for my blog and follow me on twitter @ChristineGurney.
