Once clients have entered into an investment advisory program agreement, the Portfolio Manager acts within the capacity of a fiduciary. As stated in the video these fiduciary duties are outlined in the SEC Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Please carefully review the Wells Fargo Advisors advisory disclosure document for a full description of our services. The minimum account size for this program is $50,000.
