BOSTON -- Fidelity Investments([R]) today announced that 55 breakaway brokers, bringing more than $7 billion in assets, have selected the company as the custodian for their newly established independent registered investment advisor (RIA) firms during the first six months of 2008, more than doubling the assets from new breakaway clients during all of 2007.
New breakaway clients cite several key factors in selecting Fidelity as their custodian, including the company's years of experience working closely with breakaway firms to help guide them through the transition, the coming launch of the Fidelity WealthCentral([R]) brokerage workstation, and the recently launched HybridOne(SM) offering for dually-registered advisors.
