Only Advisors who are exempt from registration are eligible to open a Family Advisor account. Generally, most jurisdictions require that an advisor have 15 or fewer clients in order to qualify for exemption from registration. Registration requirements can vary among jurisdictions and often allow fewer than 15 clients and/or limited assets under management(AUM). For example, advisors residing in the U.S. may be required to register under either State or Federal law if they meet certain criteria (e.g., total assets under management, number of clients, whether they receive compensation, etc.).
Advisors whose Registered Independent Advisor registrations are pending or who aspire to become RIAs can open a Family Advisor account and then, when their registration is complete, upgrade their account to a Registered Investment Advisor account by entering information about their securities and/or commodities registration on the Advisor Qualifications page in the Advisor Portal.
