What is independent advice

With Essex, “trust” takes on a deeper meaning.

At Essex, our Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are bound by law to put each client’s interests before our own. It’s something called the “trust” or “fiduciary” standard. This makes all the difference in the way your personal advisor approaches your investment strategy. Many investment advisors, such as stockbrokers, are only required to provide “suitable” advice which can be fraught with conflicts of interest.
