TD Ameritrade Institutional Arms RIAs with Award-winning Ads to Attract New Clients Business Wire JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- April 23, 2013 Independent registered investment advisors (RIAs) now have access to an award-winning marketing tool to help raise consumer awareness about the benefits of working with a fiduciary advisor. Advertising templates available in TD Ameritrade Institutional’s^1 comprehensive Advisor Marketing Toolkit have earned a Gold MarCom Award for excellence in marketing communications. The winning work was created by Donath Communications, a New York-based marketing agency, and is made available at no cost to all advisors using the services of TD Ameritrade Institutional. The toolkit provides RIAs with a series of customizable marketing materials and advertisements to help promote and distinguish their fiduciary responsibility to investors. These turnkey marketing communications aim to educate investors about the difference between brokers, who are typically held to a suitability standard, and RIAs, who as fiduciaries, are required to put the best interest of clients ahead of their own. “It is critical that RIAs have a clear value proposition and proactively communicate the benefits of working in a fiduciary relationship. The investing public has become much more educated, but confusion still exists when it comes to the differences between brokers and advisors,” said Tom Nally, president, TD Ameritrade Institutional. “Investors increasingly seek objective advice and an RIA’s independent, fee-based and fiduciary approach to wealth management can be a significant marketing advantage.” Information about the Advisor Marketing Toolkit is available at www.tdainstitutional.com/toolkit, or RIAs can contact TD Ameritrade Institutional at 800-934-6124 or email@example.com.
