Frequently Asked Questions

What is an independent financial advisor?

Independent Registered Investment Advisor Representatives are professionals that provide personalized financial advice to their clients, many of whom have complex financial needs. Because these advisors are independent, they are not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products. As fiduciaries, they are held to the highest standard of care—and are required to act in the best interests of their clients at all times. They are registered with either the Securities and Exchange Commission or state securities regulators.

What does being a Fiduciary mean?

A fiduciary is a professional entrusted to manage assets or wealth while putting the client’s best interests first at all times. Financial advisors who follow a fiduciary standard must disclose any conflict, or potential conflict, to their clients prior to and throughout the advisory engagement. Fiduciaries will also adopt a code of ethics and will fully disclose how they are compensated.

What separates us from other financial advisors?

A combination of independence, comprehensive service, and client focus sets us apart. As an independent Registered Investment Advisor, we aim to provide the best advice for each client’s specific situation and needs without concerning ourselves with the agenda of a parent company. We are oriented toward providing each client the attention and service they deserve. We treat our clients as individuals and not numbers.

Where are my investments held?

In our advisory role, we never take custody of client assets. We utilize LPL Financial as the custodian of client accounts and as our primary broker. Lazarus Wealth Management never takes custody of client assets; we only have your permission to manage them.

How do I begin?

Typically, we only need a copy of your most recent account statement and your signatures on a few forms. We will take care of setting up your new account and transferring your assets, if we are a good fit for you.
