Many independent broker-dealers allow for this arrangement which allows the advisor to have greater independence, control, and financial reward on the advisory side of his or her practice. While a hybrid setup allows an advisor to offer both brokerage and advisory services, it should be noted that this arrangement is generally under greater regulatory scrutiny given the potential conflicts of interest. It is very important that if you are considering joining an independent broker-dealer that you first confirm that the broker-dealer allows you to have your own independent RIA firm.

As part of the RIA registration process, it will be important to disclose your outside business activity as a registered representative with the broker-dealer.
