On Friday, we celebrate the birth of our nation, the beginning of our country’s independence. We celebrate the freedom to make our own choices, build our own companies and chase our own dreams. We are grateful for those who have served so that we may be free. As Independent Advisors, we understand the essence of this liberty; we are accustomed to the balance of risk and reward.
Happy 4th of July; Happy Independence!


This Spring, RIA Match was a semifinalist in the iNNOVATE LoCo Tech Pitch Competition held at AOL’s Campus here in Loudoun County (LoCo), VA. We showcased our technology and pitched our company to a panel of judges. Unbelievably one of the judges was an RIA! We are proud of the recognition and continue to gather interest and feedback from technology and financial industry experts.

If you are just joining – some things you should know:

  • It takes about 25 minutes to complete your profile.
  • Matches are run every hour.
  • Once a profile is created, you are placed in the matching pool and your Match List is automatically populated with people and practices that share your objectives.
  • All profiles, whether under the Basic (free) Plan or a paying plan can send an Indication of Interest; it’s like winking or poking on other social media sites. See this in the Toolbox of your matched profiles.
  • To view the Enhanced Profile and send emails upgrade to either the Personal or Premium Plans.

We want to continue to improve the user experience. Please share ideas about what you like, and how to improve, in the comments section of the survey. We’d love to hear what you think.

All the best,
Mary Ann
