    It’s not your money! If you have been named to manage money or property for someone else, you are a fiduciary. The role of a fiduciary is a serious one and carries with it legal responsibilities to act only in the best interest of the principal, the party whose assets you are managing, not your own. Ms. Peaden discussed the different kinds of fiduciaries and their responsibilities under the law in Virginia. She provided tips on both making financial decisions for someone else as well as protecting assets from fraud and scams.
