What is an Independent Registered Investment Adivsor (RIA)?

  • An RIA is in the business of giving advice.
  • An independent RIA is not owned by another company or institution.
  • An RIA has a Fiduciary Responsibility to their clients. They are legally required to put the client’s interest first. This is a higher standard that what is required of brokerage firms, which is the suitability of an investment for an individual client.
  • An RIA is typically compensated by fees for advice, rather than commissions on buying & selling.
  • An RIA is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the state in which they operate.
