Fiduciary Duties

Brokers are often dually registered as Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) with the SEC. RIAs are fiduciaries, and fiduciaries are required to act in their clients’ best interests. Brokers are not fiduciaries but must abide by FINRA Rule 2111 and Regulation Best Interest. (To learn more about the differences between brokers and Registered Investment Advisers, click here.) 

California Blue Sky Laws

Blue sky laws are state securities regulations that provide investors with an extra layer of protection against fraud. They frequently also define what investments qualify as securities in the state.
