About

RIA Central is a community of registered investment advisors, aspiring RIAs and thought leaders. Founded in December 2008, RIA Central’s mission is to provide a free and open exchange of ideas and resources for the betterment of the RIA industry.

We call ourselves the “Home of the Registered Investment Advisor” and towards that end we strive to make the RIA Central community as pure as the RIA industry itself. We do not allow advertising or shameless self-promotion. Our membership registration process and guidlines ensure that only qualified, professional RIAs and aspiring RIAs are admitted into the community. We screen our thought leaders and validate their subject matter expertise and track records.

These safeguards ensure that our community members gain access to unbiased and actionable information and resources within a community built to support and better our members and the RIA industry.
