Join an Existing Firm

Running your own business can be a complete life change, and a potentially risky one. But there is an alternative option, other than staying chained to a large wirehouse.

Many advisors now opt to partner with a firm that specializes in providing a home for RIAs. You can offload the operational, compliance and accounting processes on the company, while still enjoying the freedom of running your business your way.

TCA can help put you in touch with a partner who is well-suited to your particular needs and goals. Explore Our RIA Partners page to see which firms we currently work with.

Sell Your Practice

If you’ve developed a strong client base, but are looking to move on to a different career path or retire, TCA can help you make that transition while providing the best support for your clients.

We have strong relationships with a number of firms that specialize in growing through acquisitions. We can connect you to the right partner so that you can feel confident your clients are being taken care of and can sell your practice on your own terms.
