There are an estimated 12,000 registered investment advisers in the United States. From 2001 to 2015, assets under management of RIAs increased approximately 210 percent from $21.5 trillion to $66.8 trillion. As the number of RIAs grows, so too does the number of investors suffering losses at the hands of RIAs.  

If you’re taking or considering cases against independent RIAs, this webinar is for you.  In this 60-minute session, you’ll get a comprehensive overview of pursuing cases against independent RIAS.
