Bridge RIA

Are you interested in forming your own RIA, but your options are limited?

For many years we have worked with advisors to create unique solutions to suit their individual needs. Our team is knowledgeable about tuck-in or corporate/bridge RIA solutions that might work for you. These solutions can take you one (big) step closer to where you ultimately want to go.

If you’re eager to form your own RIA but there are factors limiting you from doing so today—or if you desire the independence and flexibility of working under an RIA without needing to form your own—talk to the FocusPoint team about what options might be available to you.

For example, by temporarily “tucking into” an existing RIA, you can enjoy the benefits of an independent scenario without needing to form your own RIA. FocusPoint has worked with several advisors in this situation and it has been tremendously helpful in moving them closer to where they want to go.

Depending on your unique needs and business goals, we can:

  • Help you learn more about “tucking into” an existing RIA
  • Provide you with ongoing compliance support
  • (If desired) Work with you to create a plan to ultimately form your own RIA
  • Create and execute a custom transition plan to help move your business under the existing RIA
  • Utilize our long-standing relationships to assist you with approval of your business with a best-fit custodial platform

And, for all advisors we support, we can:

  • Provide you with a full suite of non-proprietary technology to help you run your business more efficiently
  • Create customized, automated workflow processes for you and your staff
  • Execute (establish, manage, trade, monitor) an investment process that works for you
  • Design custom reports for you based on your unique needs
  • Handle all of your back/middle office and billing
  • Offer you practice development guidance
