How to Get Started with the RIA Registration Promotion
RIA in a Box® has joined together with other industry leaders to offer a unique opportunity for newly formed registered investment adviser ("RIA") firms to have access to tools that aim to make working remotely easier in the wake of COVID-19. The Path to Independence Promotion will allow advisors that partner with RIA in a Box to register a new RIA firm to use industry-leading cloud-based technology from the supporting firms, free of charge, based on their unique business needs through December 2020.
As the RIA industry adapts to the new remote work environment, RIA in a Box recognizes the important role technology plays in helping RIAs service their clients efficiently and effectively, especially during a firm's genesis. Upon registering with RIA in a Box, new advisors will secure complimentary access through December 2020 to the proprietary MyRIACompliance cybersecurity platform. The cybersecurity platform empowers RIAs to efficiently construct, implement, and document a robust cybersecurity compliance program with a single solution.
In addition, registrants will also have the opportunity to secure contracts with Morningstar, Redtail, or Riskalyze for complimentary access through the end of 2020 to:
