Best company for new ria's
Now I realize that this is a very general question, but which company do you think is the best one for a new RIA to start with? I have series 7, 66, and California L&H licenses and am searching for a firm that is going to provide solid training in financial planning fundamentals. I’m really interested in your personal experiences at your firm.
mrdead, I understand what you are asking, but your question shows a lack of basic understanding. You are not a new RIA.
you’re right, I’m getting a little ahead of myself.
I’m interested in the advisement and planning side of the business and would like to know the best company for potential IAR’s.
I don’t know how you assume from my posting that i don’t want to prospect and market for new clients. I never implied anything of the sort. I was simply soliciting first-hand experiences and “war stories” from others who have already been there. That being said, your point about working in a bank is an accurate one and duely(sp) noted.
ps: as for the mistake in terminology, I addressed that in the previous post.
I’m interested in comprehensive planning rather than pure brokerage. I am well aware that sales is a major part of this profession and I’m by no means trying to avoid it.
Now, do you have anything useful to contribute?
btw, don’t ever assume anything. I’m sure you’ve heard the adage of what happens to people who assume.

And what useful contribution have you made here? I mean besides asking dumb questions and then demanding people help you? Think that winning attitude just might have something to do with the lack of response you are getting?
Keep doing what you’ve been doing and you’ll keep getting what you’ve been getting.
Mrdead,you may want to try www.financial-planning.com. Their boards may be a bit more helpful for the questions you have.
Boy what a bunch of smug SOB’s to a simple question. Little touchy don’t you think. Oh that’s right your registered reps…your life does suck!
These forums tend to not be very friendly to simple questions. There are a lot of really bored Jack A**es on this site that just like to try and sound all high and mighty and make newbies with genuine simple questions look stupid. It is the nature of the business I guess. Prospect like crazy and you will be successful at any firm.
Oh and by the way all you great talking heads. The ridiculous term" newbie’ refers only to this site. I am an RIA and have been in the business for 12 years. I am a “newbie” on this site because I am to busy to spend all my time on message boards. If your not going to help a brother out than what is the point!
Great question. Why did you bother to post yourself if you were not going to "help a brother out" and answer the OP question? [quote=porter18]Boy what a bunch of smug SOB's to a simple question. Little touchy don't you think. Oh that's right your registered reps...your life does suck![/quote] Who is the one being smug now?! You should change your user name to Irony, as you managed in both your posts to commit and then compound the exact offences that you posted to complain about. Quite a talent indeed. Here's another chance for you to demonstrate you can walk the walk instead of just talk the talk: why don't you actually answer the question? Since you are apparently too busy to waste time here conversing with mere registered reps whose lives all suck, here's the original question for you: Which company do you think is the best one for a new RIA to start with? I have series 7, 66, and California L&H licenses and am searching for a firm that is going to provide solid training in financial planning fundamentals. I'm really interested in your personal experiences at your firm. We wait with rapt anticipation for what would be your first helpful answer here.
If your not going to help a brother out than what is the point!
