A fiduciary is an individual who owes a duty of care to another individual by being in charge of a retirement plan, being appointed a power of attorney, a guardian, administrator, or executor of a ward or estate. When the fiduciary places the interest of himself or herself above those whose interest should come first, legal action can take place. The beneficiary may have a cause of action against the fiduciary if that individual has used the power for his or her own benefit.
