The U.S. Department of Labor “Fiduciary Rule”, effective June 9, 2017, addresses new requirements for the investment industry related to the management of and making of recommendations in relation to Retirement accounts, including Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). The Fiduciary Rule requires fiduciaries to retirement plans, plan participants and IRA owners to act impartially and provide advice that is in their client’s best interest.

As a Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm, Arbor Investment Management has always been required to act in a fiduciary capacity and in the best interest of our clients, on all accounts whether retirement or non-retirement. Arbor Investment Management’s disclosures and policies related to the DOL Fiduciary Rule of 2017 are provided as part of our firm’s comprehensive disclosure brochure, also referred to as Form ADV Part 2 A&B. You can download the updated copy of this document below. It is also available via the FINRA website, which manages disclosure documents that financial firms are required to make publicly available.

Arbor Investment Management disclosure brochure

Arbor Investment Management, LLC, is a registered investment adviser in the States of Michigan, Alaska, Colorado, Texas, and Washington. The adviser may not transact business in states where it is not appropriately registered, excluded or exempted from registration. Individualized responses to persons that involve either the effecting of transaction in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, will not be made without registration or exemption.
