Charles, An RIA is a registered investment advisor. It means a financial advisor that, by law, puts clients first. It contrasts in part with a registered rep or stockbroker that sells financial products for a commission. One knock on stockbrokers is that they historically sold the products of their own firms, which was often not in client interests. Now we have Vanguard doing something like that on the surface using its own funds, though different in some of the particulars including the fact no sales commissions are involved and Vanguard funds tend to be relatively inexpensive. -Brooke
