Choosing Your Money Management Professional – the Registered Investment Advisor
An RIA is legally bound to work in your best interest. Under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, Registered Investment Advisors are held to a fiduciary standard of care. By law, they must ensure that each investment recommendation they make is based on your best interest. In the event that a conflict of interest should arise, RIAs are required to let you know. Additionally, they are required to have a written code of ethics that governs their actions and fully discloses how they are compensated.
Most RIAs work under fee-based compensation, which is why it is so important for you to understand exactly how your advisor is compensated. Most independent RIAs charge a flat fee or a fee based on the assets they manage for you. This straightforward system is easy to understand, is fully disclosed to you in writing, and provides additional incentive for your advisor to grow your assets.
Furthermore, RIAs must file a Form ADV with the Securities and Exchange Commission that describes exactly how they do business and how they are compensated. Form ADV consists of two parts; part one contains information about the advisor’s business regarding ownership and regulatory matters while part two features two sections known as the ADV Brochure and the Brochure Supplement. These sections outline the advisor’s services, fees, background, and strategies in addition to information on the specific advisor providing financial advice.
Most independent RIAS work with third-party custodians, which means your assets are held by an independent third-party custodian, such as TD Ameritrade, Inc. It also means that you will receive regular statements from that custodian detailing every transaction in your account in addition to any reports that your RIA may send. Pearson Capital charges a 1% annual fee for all accounts (no minimums required).
