A fiduciary is someone who is tasked with putting your interests ahead of their own. Most Financial Advisors are not required to put your interests first. Yes, you read that correctly. Most of the wealth management firms and banks you know by name provide financial advice under the “suitability rule”. If a financial product or solution is “suitable” for your risk profile and investment objectives, the “broker” can sell it to you. They are not required to take costs or quality into consideration.

On the other hand, financial professionals who adhere to a Fiduciary Standard (yours truly!) are required by law to put their client’s interests first. Among other things, this means removing any potential conflicts of interest and seeking the best investments at the best prices at all times.

Sounds crazy, right? Shouldn’t all Financial Advisors be required to put their client’s interests first?

Hi, I’m Steve Witter, CFP®

I’m a financial planner working with busy professionals and NYSTRS teachers in the Buffalo, NY region.

I am a graduate of SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and attended the College for Financial Planning earning the designation of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ – exemplifying my commitment to the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in the industry.

When I’m not in the office, you can find me traveling with my wife, changing our daughter’s diaper, walking the dog, exploring Buffalo’s rich history, searching for the best chicken wings, doing crossfit or trying to master my golf swing.
