DEFINING AN INDEPENDENT INVESTMENT ADVISOR

Defining your advisor structure and how you are paid is always a first topic of conversation with advisors to determine whether you are eligible to receive a business loan.

We have the ability to lend to independent businesses. This includes registered investment advisors (RIAs), broker-dealer representatives and investment advisor representatives (IARs) who are paid via 1099. If you fall into any of these categories, your advisor structure qualifies you as a business owner and you can apply for a loan. The only advisors who are ineligible for financing are W-2 employees. We know this can be complicated and our loan specialists can walk through what your advisor structure looks like.
