We don’t “shop” your loan to the highest bidder— approve, underwrite, fund & service the loan ourselves. You’ll always get straightforward answers from us.

Industry Experience:

Our loan officers are industry veterans who work specifically with financial advisors like you. Let us share our experience and data to help you refine your growth strategy and access the capital to make it a success.

Simplicity and Speed:

Our innovative online platform optimizes the speed and ease of closing, while minimizing paperwork. With Live Oak Bank, you can look up the status of your loan online, any time.

We're ready when you are


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.



Live Oak Bank makes it easy for investment advisor professionals to build firm value by providing affordable, flexible business loans. Our Investment Advisory Lending Team is the financing partner you need, empowering you with focused industry expertise and innovative technology solutions throughout the loan process.
