I've been self employed for about 2 years now. My business consists of managing separate accounts for clients - some high net worth and some not so. I don't customize investments based on client profile - I have a number of quantitative programs and the clients can invest in one or more of them.The business is pretty small still - between $1 and $1.5m in client assets, and I charge a 2% management fee. Obviously this is not enough revenue to support me and my family. I have another business which is my main source of revenue for now.My question is how do RIA's raise assets for this type of business? I know that financial planner type RIA's rely on referrals, etc and generate fees based on volume of securities sold. I have acquired some clients through referrals, but that's rare for me. What are some ways a business like mine can raise assets? Is cold calling appropriate? What if I printed a glossy brochure with audited model account performances and did direct mailing to target prospects (my programs have good track records going back to Jan 2007).Any suggestions and real-life examples would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
