Registered investment advisors boosted their market share of assets of management in 2013, according to new research. Cerulli Associates discloses this finding in a third quarter 2014 report, “The Cerulli Edge: Advisor Edition.” The report examines the wirehouse channel, including advisor retention and investor relationships.

The report reveals that registered investment advisors secured 13 percent of assets under management in 2013, up from 12 percent in 2012. In comparison, the wirehouse channel’s market share dipped to 41 percent from 42 percent over the same period. AUM market share for other channels remained flat from 2012 to 2013, including that of dually registered advisors (9 percent).
