“The future of the RIA model depends greatly on the next generation,” says Beatty. “Although firms are increasingly thinking about succession, we see a lot of work still to do toward establishing implementable plans. Connecting with the next generation of advisors and investors is a critical challenge that all RIAs must address in order to grow and remain competitive in the years to come.”
