The Biggest Risks RIAs Face
According to Mark Tibergien, the biggest risks RIA firms face are keeping employees and clients. He expects the number of RIA firms with $1 billion or more will continue to grow, leading eventually to 10 national firms, 200 to 300 “super regional firms” and large local firms as the broader industry shifts more from brokerage to advisory services and from a product focus to client focus.
According to Cerulli, close to 700 RIAs with $1 billion or more in assets — or less than 4% in the industry — control about 60% of client assets.
