Talented financial advisors need a partner of the highest quality in order to compete in today's marketplace. At E.K. Riley, we recognize that fact and have worked for ten years to create an extraordinary organization dedicated to that one goal - to be the best partner for all of our advisors. Along the way, we think we have learned the key to providing a world-class advisor experience - using quality investment tools, groundbreaking technology and talented advisor support teams.
One thing is certain: E.K.Riley will offer you a different standard of support than any other independent brokerage in the industry. For advisors ready to discover our new century advisor experience, we offer four different business models: Traditional Employee, Independent Employee, Independent Contractor and Hybrid RIA. We give you the flexibility to run your business, your way.
Founded in 2002, E.K. Riley Investments is a 100% employee and advisor-owned Seattle-based broker dealer and investment advisor. From the beginning, we had one goal - to support great retail advisors and their clients. That one goal drove us to eliminate as many conflicts of interest as possible; at E.K. Riley you won't find a corporate finance department, proprietary products, commercial banking, or private placements. For the past three years, we have moved beyond the traditional independent brokerage model to create a what we call the New Century Advisor Experience - a combination of industry-leading clearing, support, and technology that can transform your business.
As we’ve matured as a firm, we have attracted talented advisors and support personnel, becoming the extraordinary firm we are today. We’ve grown to twenty-one locations and are headquartered in the U.S. Bank Centre in downtown Seattle.
Our continued success is built upon the extraordinary efforts and cooperative spirit of our people, an impressive team of experienced, dedicated professionals. Our advisors often tell us it is the competence and accommodating attitude of our support staff that reinforced their decision to join our firm. Our people are genuinely committed to responsive, one-on-one service.
