RIA in a Box says it has partnered with Morningstar, Redtail Technology and Riskalyze to offer free digital tools to new RIAs working remotely amid the Covid-19 crisis.
The initiative will allow advisors partnering with RIA in a Box access to cloud-based tech services from supporting firms for free through December 2020, according to a press release from the company. This includes free access to the cybersecurity platform MyRIACompliance; the portfolio management software and reporting and billing platform Morningstar Office Cloud; Redtail’s client relationship management platform and Riskalyze Elite, which offers various client engagement tools such as risk assessment, lead generation questionnaires, retirement maps and more, RIA in a Box says.
"We are seeing record levels of advisors exploring how to start an RIA firm. This initiative will help ensure Covid-19 does not stand in the way of any advisor seeking full independence to better serve their clients," RIA in a Box president GJ King says in the press release. "With this announcement, RIA in a Box’s mission is to give new RIAs the ability to leverage technology solutions so they can provide their clients with the best possible experience, virtually.
