This event RIA channel growth continues to increase, driven by a large number of advisors breaking away to either open up their own RIA firms or become part of an established one, according to the latest Cerulli Edge report on U.S. asset and wealth management.

A majority of advisors at wirehouse, national/regional broker-dealer, insurance BD and retail bank BD advisory firms indicated they would prefer to transition to the independent RIA, hybrid RIA or independent BD channels if they leave their current firm.

Designed for registered investment advisors, as well as advisers looking to go independent, the 2nd InvestmentNews RIA Virtual Summit, October 6-7, 2021, will showcase strategies, research, marker outlook, investment trends, and opportunities.

Our two concurrent streams will offer topics and speakers that align with unique needs of each of the two segments - “established” RIAs and “breakaway advisor” or “new” RIA.
