RIA in a Box, a provider of compliance, cybersecurity and registration software solutions to the wealth management industry, has acquired Gordian Compliance Solutions, a wealth management compliance consultant.

The combination is expected to bring RIA in a Box's software to a greater audience of registered investment advisers, private funds and broker dealers and deepen the company's regulatory expertise, further enabling RIA in a Box to provide value-add compliance software and support to firms of all sizes.  

Headquartered in San Francisco, Gordian provides ongoing regulatory compliance support to investment advisers, private fund managers (including hedge funds and private equity firms) and broker dealers. Gordian is considered a bespoke service for sophisticated private fund managers and investment advisors. RIA In A Box has offices in New York and Orange Village.

"RIA in a Box's mission is to empower the financial advisor by coupling innovative software and expert advice to support their ongoing compliance and regulatory needs," said RIA In A Box VP of Corporate Development and Strategy Rahul Mohan said in a statement. "Gordian's broader expertise will help us expand both our software and consulting expertise to support leading wealth management firms and private fund managers. We welcome Niel and the Gordian team into the RIA in a Box family as we come together to provide best-in-class support to the wealth management industry."

Together, RIA in a Box and Gordian expect to be able to support investment advisers and private fund managers with cutting-edge regulatory compliance software, coupled with industry-leading consulting expertise and client focus. RIA in a Box will also now have a new West Coast hub with the addition of Gordian's downtown San Francisco office. Together, Gordian and RIA in a Box already serve over 250 firms headquartered in California and plan on expanding their regional presence in the future.

Gordian President Niel Armstrong added: "With Gordian's entire team joining RIA in a Box, we bring decades of collective experience, and a reputation as a leading compliance partner. RIA in a Box is a well-respected leader with deep compliance software and consulting expertise. This will be a particular advantage for our private fund clients who appreciate our specialist help and have also been looking to add technology to automate and document more routine compliance processes."
