Increasingly advisors are evaluating becoming their own RIA and the risks and rewards of doing so. This trend has created a new segment of firms for advisors to evaluate. Hybrid-Super-OSjs, these firms can provide the scale that includes more affordable compliance and technology as well as a multi-custodial platform which advisors are seeking.
