1.) Get advice based on what’s best for you...
Whether it’s your retirement planning, tax situation, estate planning or assets at multiple places, it’s fundamentally important that your advisor truly understands you, your goals and your situation. Many independent RIAs are in a position to do that, and pride themselves on strong personal interaction with their clients and dedication to their needs. They believe that their independence is key to offering investment advice-based on what best for their client needs.

2.) Understand exactly what you’re paying for...
Independent RIAs typically charge a fee based on a percentage of total assets managed. This fee structure may have advantages. Its’ simple and easy to understand, helping to avoid surprises. It also gives your advisor an incentive to grow your assets -  when you succeed, your advisor succeeds.

3.) Get advice for your complex needs...
Many independent RIAs provide services which address a variety of complex investment needs which often arise when you accumulate significant wealth, such as assisting you with the dale of business, complicated tax situations, trusts and intergenerational planning. Some advisors are specialist in certain investment strategies. Others can assist you with comprehensive services, such as estate planning or borrowing. Given the rich diversity of specialization throughout the industry, no matter how complex your individual needs, you will likely find an independent RIA who can provide you with outstanding advice designed especially for you and your unique needs.

4.) Enjoy a different kind of relationship...
The goal of an RIA is to help find solutions that are closely aligned with clients needs and objectives, and many independent RIAs enjoy a deep, personal relationship with their client needs. This often takes a regular, ongoing interaction. And because many independent RIAs are entrepreneurial business owners. The buck stops with them, so to speak, and they frequently have a strong sense of personal accountability to their clients.

5.) Know where your money is held...
RIAs typically use institutional custodians – generally large brokerage firms or banks – to hold and safeguard their client’s stocks, ETFs and other assets. These custodians also provide important infrastructure services such as executing trades and preparing monthly statements for clients. This helps an RIA focus on understanding your needs and providing the best advice possible.
