Many financial professionals are not bound by fiduciary duty. Instead, they are only required to fulfill a suitability obligation and provide reasonable recommendations to their clients.
At Stephens Planning, we are held to a strict fiduciary duty. This means we are required, by law, to act in the best interest of our clients at all times.
To help you make smart financial and investment decisions, we take the time to fully understand every aspect of your individual circumstances, goals, and challenges. Each financial plan is unique to you and evolves through the different stages of your life.
Independent advisors are not bound to any family of funds, investment products, or services. The distinct advantage of an independent financial advisor and Stephens Planning is that we are singularly focused on achieving your long-term financial goals. We do not answer to a corporation; we only answer to you!
