  • What is ADISA?

    ADISA, the Alternative & Direct Investment Securities Association, formerly the Real Estate Investment Securities Association (REISA), and before that, the Tenant-In-Common Association (TICA), is a trade association serving all professionals who offer and distribute alternative investments. ADISA members include broker-dealers, sponsors, registered investment advisers, registered representatives, financial advisors, lenders, real estate brokers, consultants, due diligence firms, investment advisers, accountants, law firms, technology firms and other affiliated companies and personnel.

  • How do I become a member of ADISA?
    You may join ADISA online.
  • What’s the membership cost?
    Annual membership dues are based on your membership classification (read more about that below). Please see our membership dues page for specific costs.
  • If I’m eligible for more than one membership classification, how do I determine which one to choose?

    Choose the membership classification that will most closely align with your relationship with ADISA. For example, a principal of a sponsor who is also a licensed registered representative, and who is primarily a member of ADISA to market, promote or solicit for the benefit of the sponsor, is defined as a sponsor member. Members are expected to select their classification ethically and not circumvent the intent of the classes for their own financial or other benefit.

  • Is my membership based on my anniversary date or calendar year?

    Membership is based on your anniversary date.

  • Does ADISA have a set of professional standards?
    ADISA does not publish "standards" per se; however we do have a Code of Ethics which members receive in their welcome kit. ADISA also hosts some surveys and committee reports which research sound practices in some aspects of the industry.
