Membership in the Investment Management Consultants Association, which administers the CIMA credential, surged a healthy 7% to 8,400 last year. 

 

Drill down into the numbers and you'll find that a net 620 RIAs joined the organization.

 

But overall membership actually increased by only 550.

 

Granted, attrition plagued the broker-dealer channel last year, but this indicates that RIAs are signing up for the CIMA faster while other types of advisory firm are giving up.

 

At this point, 27% of IMCA members are RIAs. If this goes on, IMCA may one day become a rival to today's RIA-heavy trade groups.
