Back Office, Compliance and More
Instead of forming an independent RIA (registered investment adviser), Jason decided to align the breadth of his experience with an RIA partner that would allow him to pursue a true fiduciary relationship with his clients. The RIA role is to take care of our compliance, reconciliation and billing functions, software/technology solutions, interaction with custodian partners such as Schwab, Fidelity and TD Ameritrade, and support our marketing efforts.
