Operations & Technology Consulting

For existing RIAs, PFI Advisors is available to consult on many of the operational and strategic issues facing larger firms as they continue to grow and need scale.

Technology Assessments

Many RIAs ask, “Are our systems best suited for our current state of operations? Are our employees using the systems properly? Do we have the proper workflows built into our service model? Are our systems integrated with one another?” PFI Advisors can provide a full operational diagnostic for your firm.

Technology Conversions

It is quite common for a firm to outgrow their current technology solution(s). We can lead the due-diligence process of replacement vendors and handle the heavy lifting during a conversion from one system to another – all while you stay focused on your day-to-day responsibility of providing investment performance and service to your clients.

Opening New Office Locations

Have you outgrown your current office space, or do you want to add a new office in a new location? Just as we do for breakaway teams, we can help locate the right office space for you, furnish it, add new technology (computers, phones, audio-visual components), and integrate that office into your firm, all while you remain focused on your core client responsibilities.

Pre-acquisition Analysis of Wirehouse "Tuck-in" Opportunities

Will a wirehouse book of business translate into the independent space? Will it be profitable as an RIA? We can help you analyze a wirehouse team’s current level of production and show you what that book will look like as a part of your business.

For breakaway advisors looking to build an RIA from scratch, or existing RIAs trying to determine if their firm is currently using the best technology solutions for their current business, the biggest challenge is simply navigating through the seemingly endless solutions offered to independent advisors. PFI Advisors can help you filter through the noise and present the most logical, customized RIA Infrastructure that best suits the needs of your clients, your employees, and your service model.
