Our Company

RIA in a Box® provides the leading compliance solution for investment advisers. We put the client first by delivering innovative software and expert advice. Since 2005 we take pride in partnering with our clients to establish and support the highest quality registered investment adviser ("RIA") firms in the country.

We've helped over 4,000 investment advisers start an RIA firm and also provide ongoing monthly compliance assistance to over 2,000 SEC and state-registered RIA firms across the country. Our investment adviser compliance programs pair our MyRIACompliance® online software platform with compliance consulting expertise provided by our team of former regulators.

Beyond RIA registration and compliance services, we often assist investment advisers with broader business decisions such as custodian and technology selection and many other considerations related to being an independent investment adviser. 

Contact us today to see how we can assist with your RIA registration and compliance.
