A fiduciary is a person or firm with rights and powers to be exercised for the benefit of another person. A conflict of interest occurs when the amis of two different parties are incompatible. If a person claims to be a fiduciary but benefits more or less, based on the buying, selling, management, or profit of assets under management, they are in breach of their fiduciary duty.
