An investment advisor is required by law to act as a fiduciary for his client. A stock broker, or “wealth manager” as they refer to themselves, are not. Brokers follow a less stringent “suitability” rule. The difference means that investment advisors must avoid conflicts of interest, whereas a broker should simply disclose them to you as this article points out. Make sure you work with an investment advisor.
