MMI NetMeeting - Investment Management Trends in the RIA Channel

Replay | MMI NetMeeting

The RIA channel is the fastest growing intermediary distribution channel in the U.S., and it is wildly diverse in terms of how different RIAs approach investment management. This diversity is driven by the differing client segments RIAs serve, their individual business models, and the degree to which investment management is core to the RIA’s value proposition versus ancillary to a more goals-based financial planning focus.

These differences lead to a seemingly endless array of approaches to portfolio construction tied to whether – and what – they choose to insource versus outsource and the types of investment vehicles they use. RIAs may use centralized models, individual advisor models, or model marketplaces, or they may outsource fully to a TAMP for everything from asset allocation and investment selection to trading.

Join us Tuesday, September 15 at 2:00 PM ET for this MMI NetMeeting as a panel of experts discusses key data points and the most significant trends to help you understand the state of investment management in the RIA space and what lies ahead. Topics include:

  • An overview of the RIA market, including channel sizing and composition, portfolio construction, and investment management solutions
  • How RIAs select and deploy third-party asset management solutions
  • The demand for investment solutions driven by a goals-based planning approach
  • Emerging solutions, including ESG and alternative investment strategies
  • The growing TAMP opportunity as outsourcing picks up steam
