The NAPFA Fiduciary Oath

The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is proud to be the only professional association that requires every member to adhere to a “Fiduciary Oath.”  This oath is the guiding principle for NAPFA members as they go about advising their clients on a daily basis.

The following is the NAPFA Fiduciary Oath that is signed by NAPFA-Registered Financial Advisors:

The advisor shall exercise his/her best efforts to act in utmost good faith and in the best interests of the client. The advisor shall provide written disclosure to the client prior to the engagement of the advisor, and thereafter throughout the term of the engagement, of any conflicts of interest, which will or reasonably may compromise the impartiality or independence of the advisor.

The advisor, or any party in which the advisor has a financial interest, does not receive any compensation or other remuneration that is contingent on any client's purchase or sale of a financial product. The advisor does not receive a fee or other compensation from another party based on the referral of a client or the client's business.

All financial advisors at Three Bearings Fiduciary Advisors adhere to the NAPFA Fiduciary Oath.
What this means to you as a client:

  • We shall act in utmost good faith in a manner that we reasonably believe to be in your best interests at all times.
  • We shall provide disclosure to you of any conflicts of interest that may compromise our impartiality or independence.
  • We shall not accept any referral fees or compensation that is contingent upon the purchase or sale of a financial product.
  • We shall not accept compensation from any other party.
