Congratulations, Shaun!

HIFON founder Shaun Kapusinski becomes the youngest ever recipient of the prestigious 2019 Iconoclast Award at Bob Veres' Insider's Forum Conference for his ceaseless advocacy for Operations Professionals in the RIA space.


Most Operations Leaders are alone at their firm.

Make Friends. Learn Faster. Get More Done.

Join HIFON, the premier network for Operations Professionals of independent RIAs.

Hi, I'm Shaun.

In 2010, my firm was expanding fast. As Director of Operations, I had a problem: For every challenge I could solve from experience, there were three new ones I couldn't. I needed help.

I searched all over the industry for answers. The main thing I learned was that I wasn’t the only RIA operations leader who felt isolated, untrained, and unsure.

When you join HIFON, you join a community of world-class peers who truly understand the challenges you face and respect the work you do. Our members collaborate so you can do your job better, with less effort, and advance your firm.

The support, advice, and best practices you'll enjoy as a member of our community will propel your career -- and our profession -- to new heights.

Welcome. Take a look around and feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions.
