THE HISTORY OF HIFON
From Uncertainty to Excellence
In 2010, I was seven years into my role as Director of Operations of a firm that had been ramping up assets, employees, and was about to add new locations.
We were growing and I needed help.
I searched for an operations study group, but came up empty. I went to conferences seeking operations specific training, but there were only a few sessions. The main thing I learned was that I wasn’t the only RIA operations leader who felt isolated, untrained, and unsure.
So, I decided to do something about that…HIFON started informally, as a way for ops pros who interacted once a year at conferences to gather (virtually) and exchange ideas more regularly.
It worked. As word got out, HIFON grew to more than 100 members, becoming the premier network of RIA Operations Professionals. We continue to grow and add resources for our members.
Today, I'm inviting you to join us.
Every month you’ll have an hour-long call with a small subset of HIFON’s membership. This private study group let's you dig deep into various topics. You'll better understand what's possible and what other firms are doing right now. You’ll also have a chance to offer up your expertise to the rest of the group – making everyone better with this collaborative effort.
This message board will become your go-to resource for RIA operations questions. When you’re stuck, need a tip, or just some advice from someone who's been there before, just search the database of prior topics or ask a question yourself. This is your peers helping you solve your most pressing problems.
Our member website is designed with your needs in mind. The site is filled with content our members have asked for over the years – tools to collaborate, educate and connect you with your peers and industry best practices. Check out all of our member benefits.
