Ryan Larson discusses how he serves his clients as a Fiduciary Financial Planner.
Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:
A fiduciary financial planner is a professional who provides clients with financial planning and investment advice. The term “fiduciary” means that the planner is bound by law to act in the client’s best interests.
As a fiduciary, a financial planner must put the client’s interests first. This includes making recommendations that are in the client’s best interests and avoiding conflicts of interest. For example, a financial planner should not recommend investments that will generate higher commissions for the planner but may not be the best choice for the client.
Financial planners can provide a variety of services, including retirement planning, estate planning, tax planning, and investment advice. Some financial planners also offer insurance products.
Investors should always ask their financial advisor whether they are a fiduciary before receiving any advice. The investor should be aware of potential conflicts of interest if an advisor is not a fiduciary.
Ryan says: “The proprietary process we take all of our clients through is called the WRAP process (Written Retirement Action Plan). When our clients go through this process, they have a diversified plan in place that allows them to take advantage of the ups and downs in the market. Having a plan that allows investors to take advantage of the highs and lows in different market cycles is very important.”
