Answers to Common Questions

Are you a fiduciary?

Yes. But anyone can “say” they’re a fiduciary. Bruce Smith is an AIF® – Accredited Investment Fiduciary

What Is a Fiduciary? A fiduciary is a person or organization that acts on behalf of another person or persons, putting their clients’ interests ahead of their own, with a duty to preserve good faith and trust. Being a fiduciary thus requires being bound both legally and ethically to act in the other’s best interests. (Source: Investopedia.com)

Risk Considerations

An investment in this managed account should be made with an understanding of the risks involved with owning common stocks, such as an economic recession and the possible deterioration of either the financial condition of the issuers of the equity securities or the general condition of the stock market. An investment in a portfolio containing equity securities of foreign issuers is subject to additional risks, including currency fluctuations, political risks, withholding, the lack of adequate financial information, and exchange control restrictions impacting foreign issuers

Risks associated with investing in foreign securities may be more pronounced in emerging markets where the securities markets are substantially smaller, less liquid, less regulated, and more volatile than the U.S. and developed foreign markets. The value of the securities may be subject to steep declines or increased volatility due to changes in performance or perception of the issuers.
