Registered Investment Advisors (“RIAs”)

As more and more assets flow to registered investment advisors, your clients demand access to progressive investment research and solutions and gone are the days when a simplistic portfolio of securities was sufficient. To compete effectively against larger firms, advisors must be in a position to offer globally diversified investment portfolios across both public and private markets. And as asset flows to the RIA channel accelerate so does scrutiny from the regulators. It is essential to demonstrate institutional-quality processes and procedures across your investment platforms.

As a leading RIA ourselves, Fiducient Advisors identifies with your objectives and aspirations. We provide OCIO support to a number of other RIAs in asset allocation/portfolio construction, investment research/selection, marketing/communication and general practice management. We leverage our extremely robust investment research effort to form true partnerships - our research professionals act as an extension of your staff. Through our Financial Institutions Outsourcing practice, we not only share the innovative research we consistently produce, but we also impart the experience and expertise we’ve gained serving clients as a fiduciary since our founding in 1995. We believe the community of like-minded advisors we created makes us all better practitioners and, most importantly, makes the clients we all serve better-off as well. We are here to help you and your clients prosper!
