What is a True Fiduciary?
True Fi·du·ci·ar·y™ tro͞o/ fəˈdo͞oSHēˌerē
Noun. Financial advisor who acts in the interests of their clients
Worried about the financial advisor charged with protecting your hard-earned wealth? You’re not alone.
According to the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, over 60% of consumers feel their financial advisor puts their company’s interests first. Only a staggering 12% believe their advisor is acting in their interests.
From misconduct to hidden fees and commission deals, the problem has become so severe the federal government has recently acted to curb the impact on consumers and their financial security, but it doesn’t go nearly far enough.
PagnatoKarp is focused on acting in your best interests. It’s what we call True Fiduciary™ and it’s not only our trademark, it’s our very nature.

David Karp, quoted by Tony Robbins in his book Money: Master the Game
Speaking on what makes a suitable financial advisor, Mr. Robbins says “By legal definition, all they have to do is provide you with a product that is ‘suitable’...Yet, according to David Karp, it doesn’t matter who benefits more, the client or advisor. As long as an investment is suitable at the time it was placed for the client, the advisor is held free from liability.”
