--- Uzurp.com opened its financial adviser and registered
investment adviser (RIA) databases to the public, for the same annual
subscription rate as businesses of $999 a year. ---
The website’s resource products, including a third database
on broker/dealers, have also been upgraded with an easier-to-use interface,
more detailed data, continuous record updates, and additions and extensive
search capabilities. Interactive walk-throughs are designed to help investors
find financial advisers and registered investment advisers.
Users can search the databases via 140 criteria—such as
geographic location, amount of assets under management, type of organization,
type of compensation and advisory activities. The databases allow mobile
downloads and unlimited cloud usage. Uzurp.com offers a discount for multiple
users or site licenses, and technical assistance is free.
The financial adviser database has information on more than
110,000 stock brokers and registered reps, and the RIA database includes
information on more than 40,000 firms.
The broker/dealer database holds information on more than 4,500 B/Ds
across the country.
“With over 245,000 contacts, we have a tremendous amount of
data,” said Christopher Joyce, chief executive of Joyce Co., which launched the
site two years ago.
