Being independent is the only way to provide truly objective and trusted advice while working with a fiduciary focus. Many financial professionals in the industry cannot provide independent and objective advice -just based on their employer relationship and how they charge for their services.
A Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) is a person or firm who advises high-net-worth individuals on investments and manages their portfolios. RIAs have a fiduciary duty to their clients, which means they have a fundamental obligation to provide investment advice that always acts in their clients’ best interests. (investopedia)
As the first word of their title indicates, RIAs are required to register either with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or state securities administrators.
Independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firms provide personalized financial advice to their clients, many of whom have complex financial needs. Because advisors at these firms are independent, they are not tied to any particular family of funds or investment products. As fiduciaries, they are held to the highest standard of care – and are required to act in the best interests of their clients at all times. They are registered with either the Securities and Exchange Commission or state securities regulators.
Many independent advisory firms are owned by the individual advisors who run them, so they forge personal relationships with their clients. The following five areas can help add trust, confidence and value when working with an independent advisor and firm:
-Customized guidance based on your entire financial picture.
-A relationship that’s responsive, attentive, and personal.
-A fee structure that is simple and transparent.
-A high level of expertise to support your complex financial needs.
-Your money is held by an independent custodian, not the advisor firm.
