About Fiduciaries

In trusts and estates, trustees, executors, administrators, personal representatives, guardians, powers of attorney, health care agents, and conservators would be considered fiduciaries. These fiduciaries could breach their duty of loyalty and acting in the best interest of another by mishandling estate or trust assets, failing to provide asset protection, failing to distribute funds in a timely manner, denying rightful payments to beneficiaries, and conducting affairs in conflict with a beneficiary’s best interest.

Other professionals acting in a fiduciary role include accountants, bankers, business advisors, financial advisors, mortgage brokers, investment and securities firms, real estate agents, and attorneys. Examples of breaches of fiduciary duties by such individuals would include fraud, embezzling client funds, misappropriation of client assets, self-dealing, and making unauthorized transactions.
