Breach of fiduciary duty
Fiduciaries have a serious responsibility. People in a fiduciary role must act honestly and knowledgeably to manage the financial interests of the parties they serve. When this duty is breached and trust is broken, individuals and businesses can experience significant financial losses.
The most common fiduciaries are:
- Business partners
- Investment firms
- Shareholders, directors and executives
