We know that a fiduciary is any person (accountants, attorneys, treasurers, bankers, business advisers, financial advisers, mortgage brokers, etcetera) who has the legal responsibility for managing somebody else’s money. This means they have a legal and ethical role over the management and investment of another party’s assets with the main duty of being a prudent investor of the trustee’s estate, putting the client’s best interest first.
We also know that these fiduciaries have many different responsibilities in the roles they play at banks, credit unions, government offices, a corporation’s financial department, family and wealth management offices, hospitals, public districts and anyone who invests, making it very difficult to keep up with a portfolio’s status and each client’s specific portfolio needs without relying on technology that lets them access current information on the markets, manage their investments, and report their transactions. While maintaining a healthy financial status of their other endeavors.
The lack of reliable technology solutions, trusted brokers or up-to-date knowledge on investment practices, has sometimes ended in losses of fixed income portfolios in its entirety or considerable losses in the millions of dollars. Simply due to miss management of assets when investing into the ‘unknown’ (when risks are ignored and portfolio policies are literally not acknowledged).
