On January 24, 2018 Oyster Consulting and the Hirschler-Fleischer law firm hosted a webinar offering insight on:

  • The business case for going independent
  • Technology platform considerations
  • Legal and compliance considerations

Following the discussion of key considerations, a panel of independent advisers answered questions about lessons learned and best practices they have employed.

When thinking about transition, Oyster can assist you in many ways, from helping you evaluate the financial model of independence, versus your current environment, to creating an onboarding timeline and customized plan and helping you implement that plan.   Oyster will also file your RIA paperwork, set up your compliance infrastructure and can provide ongoing compliance support either as an outsourced CCO or supporting your internal CCO.  We can customize the level of support during this process to fit your needs and budget, and give you as little or as much help as required to ensure we are a value-added partner.

Our team is made up of experienced industry practitioners, not career consultants. To learn more about Oyster’s services, please complete our contact form or call us at (804) 965-5400 and one of our Relationship Managers will be happy to help you.
