Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) Firms

Note: Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are fiduciaries regulated under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Independent registered investment advisors are held by law to the highest standard of responsibility to their clients that upholds them to always act in their clients’ best interests. This encourages a unique level of personalized service not always found in many commission-based, investor-advisor relationships. RIAs are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or state securities regulators.

Registration does not mean a government agency approves an advisor or reviews his or her qualifications. Many independent RIAs and other financial services professionals receive compensation for services in a variety of ways. You should determine which method of compensation offers the lowest total costs and best meets with your own investment interests and needs. Independent advisors use an independent custodian to hold your assets. This means your money is not being held by the same person who is investing it.

Credit Unions

Tired about reading when a global bank where you have your checking or savings account is involved in a national lawsuit or federal securities investigation? If so, dump that bank and select a credit union. Credit unions are not-for-profit, member-owned, and provide most of the same services provided by large national banks. They are accountable to their member-owners and because credit unions earn a federal tax exemption, their members see earnings converted into higher savings returns, lower loan rates and lower, fewer fees.

Check here for a list of the credit unions near you.

The Committee advocates for the authentic fiduciary standard as established under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The Committee seeks to help inform and nurture a public discussion on the fiduciary standard. Its objective is to ensure that any financial reform regarding the fiduciary standard, 1.) Meets the requirements of the authentic, undiluted fiduciary standard, as presently established in the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, and ERISA, and 2.) covers all professionals who provide investment and financial advice or who hold themselves out as providing financial or investment advice, without exceptions and without exemptions.

Establish a Co-Operative Business Legal Structure

Co-ops may or may not incorporate, but should draft a document stating membership requirements and responsibilities. The purchase of shares confers membership and members may vote on business issues on a vote-per-member basis. Co-ops are usually run by elected directorial boards. Profits and losses typically flow through to members in accordance with the number of shares they hold and are reported on the tax returns of the members.

For examples of how co-ops benefit workers, their business and the community, see this interview.
