foolchi123 Could any one tell me why III being the element of fiduciary duty?
katybo loyalty?
cbb1 The four basic fiduciary duties based on earlier question are
1. loyalty
2. prudence
3. diversification
4. effectuation

Confidentiality is NOT one of them. While are three (I, II, III) are good things, only I and II are specifically covered in the basic fiduciary duties.
soham prudence. it's just about being nice to a guy thats laying it out in the open for you. just be nice.
Yooo "Prudent Man Rule". If you had sensitive information regarding your own financial situation, would you be indiscreet with it? As a fiduciary, you are bound by the same prudent action.
masumyee Material issued by CFA Institute, P.47, talking about the Recommended Procedures for Compliance on Standard III (A)
"Maintain confidentiality. Member and candidates must preserve the confidentiality of client information"
quynhnk79 Is it true with cbb1's definition of fiduciary duties?
Just in the beginning questions of this part, the answer end up with: diversification is not a fiduciary duty!
Why? Pls help!
wundac Fiduciary duties are: Loyalty, prudence and care. I do not believe that diversification and effectuation are valid
jpducros what is the meaning of effectuation ? if relevant...
sultana III is an element of fidicuary duty, because u as CFA charterholder are more qualified and knowledgable to use that piece of information for the overall benefit of the client. The client may be ignorant about the impact of that information.
