Frederick Van Den Abbeel: We did benefit from Fidelity’s decision and it also introduced us to other Fidelity RIA firms which were not affected -- through referrals.

I’m contemplating joining an RIA in San Diego. the firm has less than $100M in assets.

I have my series 7 and series 66, have just left a B/D and wish to pursue fee-based only business. No commissions.

What is the RIA firm required to do for my licensing? Register me as an IAR with the IARD? Thanks.
