NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 19, 2010) -  RIA In A Box (www.RIAinaBox.com), a consulting business aimed exclusively at efficient creation of registered investment advisory firms, and TradePMR, a privately held brokerage firm, will present a joint free seminar Wednesday, April 21 on "Common Misconceptions about Becoming a Registered Investment Advisor" from 5:45PM to 7PM at the American National Standards Institute Federation Room, 25 W. 43rd St., New York. Registration is required online (http://www.tradepmr.com/Views/AboutOurCompany/Events/SpecialInvitationNY.aspx)

Presented by RIA experts Frederick A. Van Den Abbeel, executive VP, TradePMR, and Ryan Marcus, director of business development, RIA In A Box, the seminar will address the big question advisors are asking: why so many advisors today are deciding to go independent and what they need to know and prepare when advisors choose that route.

"We will be going over all the critical information advisors need to consider when they want to go independent -- the requirements, the compliance issues, the types of trading strategies -- all of it," explains Marcus. "In our firm we are talking to so many advisors who see the advantages of going independent, but they need an overview of what they need to think about as they decide to make this transition. That's what we are doing with the seminar."

"We want to give attendees an unbiased perspective so they understand what it really means to run a Registered Investment Advisory practice," says Van Den Abbeel. "It is very important to understand the various models offered to financial professionals and what they can expect if they choose the independent route. The seminar will be very informative."

Registered representatives, paraplanners and staff will find the seminar helpful. The free event will take place Wednesday, April 21 at 5:45PM to 7PM. Light refreshments will be served. It will be held at the American National Standards Institute Federation Room, 25 W. 43rd St., New York. Registration is required at http://www.tradepmr.com/Views/AboutOurCompany/Events/SpecialInvitationNY.aspx.
