What is a RIA?

A Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) is a professional advisery firm that offers personalized financial advice to clients, many of whom are affluent or have complex financial needs..

  • Many independent RIAs work with complex portfolios requiring highly customized investment management, strategy, and consultation.
  • Because these advisors are independent, they are not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products.
  • Typically independent RIAs are owned by the individual advisers who run them.
  • Independent RIAs may provide advice and services for a fee based on a percentage of their client’s assets.
  • As fiduciaries, RIA firms have a fiduciary duty as they are held to the highest standard of care – and are required to act in the best interests of their clients at all times.

Benefits of working with a RIA

Independent advisors are not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products. So whether you need help with retirement planning, a tax situation, estate planning, or managing asets at multiple places, RIA’s have the freedom to choose from a wide range of investment options in order to tailor their advice based on what is best for you.

To offer advice closely aligned with your goals, independent advisors must first build a strong understanding of your situation. As a result, many independent advisors focus on building deep relationships with their clients. This often takes regular, ongoing interactions. And because many of these advisors are entrepreneurial business owners, they hold themselves personally accountable to their clients.

Independent advisors typically charge a fee based on percentage of assets managed. This fee structure is simple, transparent, and easy to understand. It also gives your advisor an incentive to help grow your assets. When you succeed, your advisor succeeds.

Independent advisors can help investors address the variety of complex investment needs that arise when you accumulate significant wealth. While specific services vary from firm to firm, they are often described as financial “quarterbacks” focused on your holistic financial picture. Some advisors are specialists in certain investment strategies. Others can assist yo with comprehensive services, such as estate planning or borrowing, the sale of a business, complicated tax situations, trusts, and intergenerational wealth transfer.
