How We Help You

Behind Your Business: Resources Investment Advisors

The Power of Partnership – Resources Investment Advisors is a co-op of Independent Advisors sharing services that strives to make members more competitive by leveraging each other and more profitable through leveraging economies of scale.

We understand your business dilemma. You’re trying to stay abreast of increasing regulatory and litigation risks but are competing against the “big boys” who leverage their size to gain new tools, services and pricing. However, you don’t want to sell everything you’ve worked hard to build just to gain those advantages.

Economies of SCALE Facilitate Growth

  • Specialization – Each job function is led by a full-time specialist allowing for deeper focus and increased productivity.
  • Culture – Keeps business owners in place as primary growth driver but centralizes non-revenue producing functions.
  • Automation – Continuous process improvement and system upgrades drive efficiency and quality.
  • Leverage – Utilize our Compliance, Economics and Portfolio Management professionals to strengthen your offering.
  • Economics – Spread major cost items over multiple firms. Create deliverables or capabilities that smaller firms could not afford on their own.

We understand because we faced the same struggles. Resources Investment Advisors (“RIA”) began in 1987 as a small, local advisory firm focused solely on managing assets for its clients. Today RIA is one of the fastest growing investment advisory firms in the country.*
