The fiduciary duty is an obligation to represent your corporation or organization loyally and with good faith. The violation or breach of fiduciary duty exposes a person to personal financial liabilities for an extensive range of damages. Fiduciaries owe their beneficiaries the highest degree of care, service, advice and action. The fiduciary must always act in the beneficial interest of their charges and cannot take any action which results in negligence or harms the interests of their beneficiaries. A fiduciary should never be in a position where their personal interests conflict in any way with the interests of their beneficial interest. Conflicts of interest must be immediately revealed, and actions must be immediately taken to protect the interests of the beneficiary.
