Securities America has been serving independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) since 1984. We formed Securities America Advisors so representatives interested in broadening their client services could join our corporate RIA without having to form their own.
About 80 percent of our advisors use our corporate RIA. Some 20 percent of Securities America advisors are affiliated with their own independent RIA. Both types of advisors have access to a variety of resources, from financial planning to our turnkey asset management programs, which provide intuitive and powerful technology and tools.
Combined, our two corporate RIAs, Securities America Advisors and Arbor Point Advisors, and our independent RIAs have more than $30 billion in advisory assets under management. The Advisory Services division generates more than half of all gross revenues for the Securities America companies.
