NEWS AND INSIGHTS FROM FINTRX
The need for unbiased wealth management has become increasingly prominent as the world continues to shift towards a remote reality — and registered investment advisors (RIAs) are at the center of this trend. With uncertainty in the markets, businesses and high-net-worth individuals turn to RIAs for their self-governing nature, fiduciary value, and financial expertise. To shine a light on the RIA space, FINTRX explores three of the largest registered investment advisors (RIAs) based in Oregon.

In general terms, a registered investment advisor (RIA) is any firm advising or managing the wealth of high-net-worth individuals or institutions. Directly regulated by the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC), RIAs offer a wide range of financial services — from wealth and investment management to direct lending and personal finance education, etc. An important distinction regarding RIAs is the fiduciary obligation to always act in the best interest of their clients.
