Why GVA

Build the business you’ve always wanted.

State of the art RIA model
Great Valley Advisor Group is built on a state of the art RIA platform, either allowing advisors to focus on both commission-based brokerage business and fee-based advisory business, or fee-based advisory business only. Our focus is aimed on taking you from where you are today and seamlessly deliver you into the private practice space.

Our continued success is based on our advisors
GVA has many competitors in the RIA arena, but GVA does more than just offer transition and compliance support. Our continued success is based on our advisors, and helping them progress. Every RIA platform should offer transition and compliance support, but at GVA, that’s only the beginning. It’s what GVA offers after the transition that truly gives the advisor the “value-add” they need to thrive as a private practice.

GVA understands that every advisor is different

Our customized model and a la carte solutions allows each advisor to design their company in a way that allows them to break free from the cookie cutter models that wirehouses and other broker dealers force them to operate in.

The GVA Experience is based on a phased approach, and uses the latest technology to make sure you’re successful.
