A fiduciary, from the Latin root which means ‘trust,’ is a person that has a responsibility to perform their duties for the full benefit of another. You may think that most professionals are looking out for you and your best interests, but did you know that most professionals aren’t legally obligated to accept fiduciary responsibilities? Here at rebel Financial, we hold ourselves to the high standards and responsibilities of a fiduciary. We will always put your interests before our own in everything we do.

This may sound like a small thing and many people wrongly assume that almost all professionals are looking out for their best interests, however, most professionals do not have a legal obligation to represent their clients and customers as a fiduciary.
