Do Preferred Resource Group Financial advisors operate as fiduciaries?
Preferred Resource Group advisors will always act in your best interest and operate as fiduciaries. A financial advisor who is a fiduciary is legally and ethically obligated to act in the best interests of their clients when providing investment advice or managing their client’s assets. This means that the financial advisor must put their client’s interests ahead of their own and disclose any potential conflicts of interest that may arise.
How are the advisors at PRG Financial – Golden Valley compensated?
This fee is based on the value of the assets we manage in-house for you. This annual fee is billed quarterly and deducted from your account(s). The advisor fee puts the advisor and the client on the same side of the table. When the client's assets increase, we benefit from this increase as well. Conversely, when the client's account decreases, our revenue also suffers. The advisory fee will give you the most proactive service.
