Compliance Solutions for Registered Investment Advisers

RIA Compliance Group assists newly registered and established Registered Investment Advisers in all areas of regulatory compliance.  In addition to initial registration services, we provide ongoing operational and compliance support services to small and midsized registered investment advisers. We take pride in giving practical compliance advice, not theoretical concepts and legalese. Too many registered investment advisers rely on consulting firms that understand SEC regulations but don’t have hands-on experience with state regulators. We interact with state securities regulators on a continuous basis and are aware of the specific regulations governing your practice.

The SEC and most states require each registered investment adviser to review its policies and procedures annually to determine the adequacy and effectiveness of their implementation.  RIA Compliance Group offers on-site and off-site examination services that assist investment advisers in meeting their annual review requirement and provides an analysis of the adviser’s readiness for a full regulatory exam from either the SEC or the States.

Our consulting team has over 60 years of combined securities compliance experience.  We are able to assist independent and hybrid investment advisers of all levels of complexity. Compliance software isn’t a substitute for personalized service or human interaction. RIA Compliance Group believes in a personalized consulting experience whereby our clients have round the clock access to their consultants. All our documents are drafted in Word format to make sure our clients have full control and complete ownership of their documents.

RIA Compliance Group offers competitive pricing for all consulting services.  Our mission is to provide practical and no-nonsense advice that helps you avoid compliance problems before they occur. We’re available at your convenience, not ours, to handle all of your compliance needs. Call or submit an inquiry today!
