For example, the agent may not make gifts or make a loan to himself unless those powers are expressly stated in the DPOA. Fiduciaries, such as trustees, owe two main duties to their clients: a duty of loyalty and a duty of care.

Thus fiduciaries must not derive any direct or indirect profit from their position, and must avoid potential conflicts of interest.
