Conflict Questions

After checking the regulatory records of Campbell Wealth Management, our system has identified the following question(s) to ask. Learn more.

Is Campbell Wealth Management also a Broker-Dealer or are they affiliated with one? What conflicts arise from this relationship? How does Campbell Wealth Management mitigate them?

Currently Campbell Wealth Management is also a Broker-Dealer or is affiliated with one. When firms are dual-registered as broker-dealers, they may be subject to compensation-related conflicts of interest, including revenue sharing from mutual funds, cross-selling of commissioned insurance products, and the sale of proprietary investment products. All of these conflicts can negatively impact clients via hidden fees and overall higher costs.

Does Campbell Wealth Management offer mutual funds that have 12b-1 fees?

12b-1 fees increase the total annual cost of owning a mutual fund with no guarantee of higher returns. Some firms receive these fees as payments, which creates an incentive to promote them.

How does Campbell Wealth Management approach insurance sales? What conflicts do I need to be made aware of?

Currently Campbell Wealth Management actively practices as insurance brokers or agents, or they are affiliated with an insurance company or agency. This arrangement creates a conflict where the firm and its representatives may be motivated to insure clients with products, including annuities and life insurance, that generate high sales commissions when lower-cost alternatives may exist.

Does Campbell Wealth Management accept soft-dollar benefits? How do these benefits affect the firm’s selection of a broker-dealer partner?

Campbell Wealth Management receives soft-dollar benefits that could incentivize them to push trades through broker-dealers that provide advantages to the firm instead of through broker-dealers that could provide the best trade execution for their clients.

Which securities does Campbell Wealth Management trade for itself that it will also be recommending to me?

Campbell Wealth Management has marked in their disclosures that they trade recommended securities. While this often can be seen as "eating your own cooking," there are several inherent conflicts that can arise. For example, front running is when a financial professional buys or sell securities ahead of their client. In short, any financial professional should disclose all positions they hold (or have sold short) that they will also be recommending to you.

Our system found no other conflict questions to ask. Checks take place monthly.

Disciplinary History

An important aspect of the Trust Algorithm is processing the SEC Form ADV Part 1 filing of each Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). “Item 11 Disclosure Information” contains a list of valuable disclosures that are relevant for Americans.

As identified in SEC Form ADV Part 1, Item 11 “Disclosure Information”, the Trust Algorithm identified the following disciplinary disclosures for Campbell Wealth Management:


Unfortunately, there is no single, uniform pricing standard for working with a financial advisor. Catchphrases, including "fee-only," can be helpful; however, Americans often get confused with competitors promoting "fee-based" in response. To learn more, explore our series of articles about what financial advisors do and what it may cost to work with one, as well as what their titles mean and how to make a smart choice.

Ultimately, to understand the underlying costs of advisory services, we always recommend asking for an itemized fees breakdown and reading the firm's ADV Part 2 Brochure (Item 5, "Fees and Compensation").
