Large-scale resources. Entrepreneurial independence.
Yes, you can have both.
Moneta is one of the nation’s largest independent Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) now partnering with financial advisors who want to enhance their client service by completely reframing what it means to be an independent entrepreneur. You don’t have to give up ownership and control of your business to be part of something bigger. At Moneta, you benefit and grow from the dynamic resources of our large-scale platform, owned and built by advisors for advisors, while maintaining the freedom of an independent business owner.
Moneta teams operate independently, with their own P&L, but work alongside each other, sharing expertise, ideas and experience to better serve clients. Our entrepreneurial spirit is strong. Our institutional knowledge is empowering. We share a common vision and the resources to get us there.
