The purpose of this research is to provide readers with an initial understanding of independent advisors, including both independent reps and fee-based financial advisors, which are collectively the fastest growing financial advisory market & distribution channel. Data on these two inter-ralted markets can be confusing due to separate registration processes and the overlap in dually registered advisors. This research is part of Tiburon's coverage of financial advisor channels.

This research addresses the three historical phases of the independent advisors market, including: 
  • Early Phase
  • Middle Phase
  • Recent Phase

    This research defines two markets segments, including:

    • Independent Reps
    • Fee-Based Financial Advisors (RIAs)

    And this research offers the following predictions:

    • Steady Flow of Break-Away Brokers
    • Continued Rapid Growth, Led by Fee-Based Financial Advisors & Dually Registered Financial Advisors
    • Independent Advisors to Become Central to Product & Technology Companies
