What is an Independent Registered Investment Advisor (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.
