In the financial industry, it is incredibly difficult for individuals to find a financial advisor who truly puts their client’s interest first.
Advisors are prone to putting their investment firm ahead of clients because of how advisors are compensated.
Due to the investment firms traditional pay structure, incentives, and bonuses, the advisor may prioritize their own career over the best interests of their clients.
At BFP, this cannot happen because we are completely independent. We owe no duty to anyone or any investment funds. The only duty the advisor has is to the client. Period.
