InvestmentNews Research

The mission of InvestmentNews Research is to provide financial advisers with the industry’s most informative practice management studies and benchmarking reports. Our benchmarking studies are a leading source of market intelligence for advisory firms and industry partners, such as custodians, broker-dealers, service providers and professional organizations. In 2009, InvestmentNews acquired two bellwether benchmarking studies from Moss Adams LLP—the Adviser Compensation & Staffing Study and the Financial Performance Study of Advisory Firms. We continue to improve and expand these two critical industry studies, while we have also introduced new studies on technology and succession planning that support the growth and development of financial advisory firms.

In addition to our research studies, InvestmentNews Research also produces regular webcasts and regional workshops that arm advisers with actionable insights. Our events allow advisers to hear directly from some of the industry’s leading experts-and also network with other advisers who are looking to improve their practices and grow their businesses.
