Rise Above: Why Advisors Choose the RIA Model and How It Helps Them Soar

The independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) model is about strength, resilience, agility. You control the ways you operate.

You have the autonomy to take on the tech, talent and more that you believe in. And you can unlock more economic potential.

As the benefits of independence grow, so does the support. From the moment you decide to become independent, Schwab helps you keep your momentum. The stories and strategies outlined in this paper are the result of our deep experience and can help you better understand how – and when – to make your move.

In “Rise Above,” you'll discover:

  • How investment advisors are harnessing the benefits of the model
  • Strategies for fulfilling practices built for the future
  • The vast ecosystem of support available to you
  • Advisor stories (including transitioning during uncertain times)
  • Why investment advisors aren't looking back
