CIAS was created around the vision that independent financial advisors are best served when they are empowered with the capability to seamlessly integrate fee and commission-based services for their end clients.
CIAS attracts investment advisors who, if they established their own registered investment advisory firm, would normally have to deal with the complexities of the current regulatory environment on their own. The association with Capital Investment Group, Inc, the broker/dealer, also gives our financial professionals the ability to offer products and services in a true hybrid business model serving clients on either a fee or commission basis.
CIAS advisors may pursue their own individual business models while allying with CIAS's compliance resources to navigate the growing, complex regulatory environment and avoid the high potential costs of maintaining their own back office.
We offer our IARs the maximum flexibility of multiple custodial partners, which puts them in the driver's seat to choose the best solution for their clients. We make available a comprehensive platform of products, trading and technology systems, as well as customized wealth management and practice management solutions.
