When taking inventory of a RIA’s business partners, the list may include technology providers, fund managers, research companies, compliance consultants, and headhunters. But perhaps the business partner RIAs most strongly rely upon is their custodian. Custodial services have, for years, been perceived as mostly “free” with revenue generated from transaction fees, cash spread, t​technology services, or by selling peripheral products. As technology such as Blockchain continues to permeate into traditional transactional services, how will custodians maintain their ability to both monetize and deliver a secure, reliable and valuable service to its clients?
On Tuesday, February 19 come explore this topic with us as we introduce a panel representing the biggest players in the custodial world today such as Fidelity, Charles Schwab, and more. We will discuss current state as well as how technological and legislative shifts may disrupt or enhance the relationship between the custodian and RIA firm for better or for worse.
Learning Objectives:​


  1. ​​​Better understand the services custodians provide
  2. Learn about the threats and opportunities to the business
  3. Decide how to best partner with a custodian to prepare for potential changes in the business
