Do financial firms really place clients as their top priority?

March 31, 2016

At TCG, our reputation is our most valuable asset. Over the last seventeen years we have established our reputation by holding ourselves to the highest standards each and every day so that we have the right to earn your trust. We believe that trust isn’t something that just happens, it has to be earned by proving our character over and over.

The following article illustrates that there are still some firms where doing what is right for the client is not always a priority. At some firms over 15% of the advisors have been penalized for misconduct. Meeting your financial goals is complicated enough without having to worry that your financial advisor is not looking out for your best interest. At TCG, we are held to the fiduciary standard, which means that our recommendations are always in your best interest.

“It’s reasonable to be intimidated by the world of investing as, after all, few of us ever learned much about it in school. Thus, it can seem as if a reasonable and safe thing to do is to seek out professional guidance or to simply accept professional advice that’s offered. According to a recent study, though, it turns out that’s not such a safe move.”
