RetireOne, a San Francisco-based platform for fee-based insurance products owned by Aria Retirement Solutions, has purchased EF Legacy Securities, a broker-dealer, from Edelman Financial Engines.
The acquisition allows RetireOne to expand its insurance and annuity back-office services for RIA firms, and better assist registered representatives moving their practices to a fee-based model, Aria said in a release.
