Investment advisors, who are usually fee-based, are bound to a fiduciary standard that was established as part of the Investment Advisors Act of 1940.
The act is specific in defining what a fiduciary means, and it stipulates a duty of loyalty and care, which simply means that the advisor must put their client's interests above their own. It also means that the advisor must do his or her best to make sure investment advice is made using accurate and complete information, or basically, that the analysis is thorough and as accurate as possible. Avoiding conflicts of interest is important when acting as a fiduciary, and it means that an advisor must disclose any potential conflicts to placing the client's interests ahead of the advisor's. Additionally, the advisor needs to place trades under a "best execution" standard, meaning he or she must strive to trade securities with the best combination of low cost and efficient execution.
As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, LongView Wealth Management acts as a fiduciary for clients. We receive no incentive to work with proprietary products and have no quotas to fulfill. Additionally, many of our advisors are Certified Financial Planner™ professionals, which means they are held to a fiduciary standard of care in all financial planning activities.
LongView Wealth Management was founded in 1981.
We personalize our services based on the needs of individual clients. We provide investment management services and financial planning services. Investment management services are provided under either of two compensation arrangements:
1. Fee-based Investment Management
2. Commission Based Investment Management
General financial advice is typically provided to clients in the course of managing their investments. We can, however, be engaged solely for the purpose of providing financial planning services. These services may include comprehensive analysis of overall financial situation or consultation on specific financial issues (college planning, retirement planning, divorce planning, etc.). Financial planning fees will be determined based on the scope and complexity of the analysis.
