A Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) is an investment adviser (IA) registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission or a state’s securities agency.
An IA must adhere to a fiduciary standard of care laid out in the US Investment Advisers Act of 1940.
This standard requires IAs to act and serve a client’s best interests with the intent to eliminate, or at least to expose, all potential conflicts of interest which might incline an investment adviser—consciously or unconsciously—to render advice which was not in the best interest of the IA’s clients.
Douglas A. Clancy, Jr. is the president of Cornerstone Wealth & Tax Advisory Group an RIA firm.
