NEW YORK, June 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Institutional Investor is excited to announce the launch of RIA Intel ( The newest addition to the Institutional Investor media line-up will build on the company’s 52-year legacy of editorial excellence. Designed to address the needs of RIAs, the most rapidly growing sector of the financial advisor market, RIA Intel keeps readers on top of the most pressing topics of the day with essential news, expert analysis, and valuable insight into the biggest and fastest-growing RIAs in the country. Amid an ever-shifting industry landscape, RIA Intel gives readers behind-the-scenes access to industry movers and shakers, trendsetters, and newsmakers. This new media hub complements Institutional Investor’s RIA Institute (, an events and real-time market research membership that convenes asset managers and owners to foster engagement, innovation, and thought leadership.

Spearheading this effort is veteran financial journalist and new RIA Intel Editor Greg Bartalos, whose insider savvy on vital news topics and trends, knowledge of the industry’s most vibrant personalities, and engaging style made him the must-have for this role.  Says Institutional Investor Editor-in-Chief and Chief Content Officer Kip McDaniel of the new appointment, “We’re extremely excited to have Greg leading Institutional Investor’s charge into the RIA media market. It’s an area of real growth that is crying out for a fresh editorial voice, and given his experience and energy, we believe Greg -- and RIA Intel -- can be that voice.”

When asked about this new endeavor, Mr. Bartalos says, “RIA Intel aims to inform the industry through quality news that is gathered with a discerning eye, and resonates with the RIA community. We also believe in a colorful, engaging approach, and in addition to informing the readership, we hope to also entertain, persuade, and perhaps challenge readers to evaluate their perspective and way of thinking about a topic.” Mr. Bartalos adds that RIA Intel prioritizes quality of content over quantity, and invites readers to “share what you like, dislike, and want to read more about.”
