Sheridan Road Financial Launches Registered Investment Adviser

Chicago, IL – September 6, 2018 – On the heels of more than a decade of steady growth and expansion, and with a continued drive toward innovation and serving the needs of our clients before others, Sheridan Road Financial, LLC has created an SEC-registered investment adviser (RIA), Sheridan Road Advisors, LLC.

“Our five-year plan was to take the ongoing necessary steps toward becoming more independent,” said Daniel Bryant, Sheridan Road’s CEO. “Our great relationship with Independent Financial Partners has served us well since we founded the firm, and we expect it to continue. However, in order to provide more value to our clients, and make more of an impact in the lives of our team members, ultimately we needed and wanted to have more control over our own destiny.” 

The Sheridan Road team began the intense process of planning the new RIA and the transition in late 2017. “The process was a bit more simplified because much of the groundwork including reviewing custodians, software, investment research and other integral business services had already been completed during the previous five years. With the addition of our general counsel and compliance oversight, we’ve built additional depth into our leadership team,” Bryant added.

“Forming our own RIA gives us control over our internal operations which ultimately enables us to provide better service to our clients,” says Jim O’Shaughnessy, Managing Partner and Co-Founder. “We will now focus on providing the most comprehensive service offering we can to our clients.”
