Who's Advising YOU?

    - Retail brokers are commissioned agents compensated by their firm or a third party for selling you investment products.

    - Commonly known as stock brokers, you can also find them labeled as Financial Advisors and Financial Consultants. Despite the titles, they should not be confused with independent, fee-only advisors. 

    - Retail brokers typically offer two different types of accounts: a “classic” brokerage account and an investment advisory account.

  • As a fiduciary we must, at all times, act for the sole benefit and interests of our clients.

IntegrityWhat is a Registered Investment Advisor?A Registered Investment Advisor is a professional advisory firm that offers personalized financial advice to its clients.

  • Many independent RIA’s work with complex portfolios and address unique needs that require a highly customized level of investment management strategy and consultation.
  • They are often owned by the individual advisors who run them.
  • RIA’s often provide advice and services for a fee based on a percentage of the client’s assets.

 Why might an independent R.I.A. be a good choice for an investor?

  • Independent RIA’s generally have affiliations with a variety of firms that assist with tax planning, estate planning, money management and more. These affiliations allow them to help their clients with complex financial needs.
  • They generally have affiliations that are free from the conflicts of interest you often see at retail brokers, independent broker dealers, or captive insurance agents.
  • The compensation of some independent registered investment advisors is directly related to growing the assets of their clients, which can benefit the advisor and client alike.
