In our business, one of the biggest hurdles is gaining the eventual transfer of one's book into the hands of a competent, honest, and ethical financial advisor who always puts the client's interest first. We are a $185,000,000 AUM firm and are looking to grow through acquisition within the next year. We have been in the business for 31 years, have one office in Nicholasville, KY. Our firm provides investment advisory, financial planning, estate planning, and insurance services. We typically work with advisors in one of three ways: The first, is for someone who is looking for a succession plan should they become disabled, pass away or decide to retire. We would compensate them now for the "first right of refusal" to make an offer on their practice when one of these events takes place. The second, is for someone who has a time horizon of 1-4 years. This allows for a merger or gradual transition into retirement. The third, is a transition within the next 12 months. We have successfully transitioned 4 books of business - moving 98.5% of assets on one and over 100% on the other 3. With all our transitions it must be a win-win-win. By that I mean that it must first and foremost be a win for your clients - they have entrusted you with their lifelong savings and I am sure you want them to be in good hands. In addition, it must be a win for you - you have most certainly put a great deal of "blood, sweat and tears" into building a successful practice and deserve to be compensated fairly. Finally, we have to be a good fit and it needs to make sense for us. If you are open to learning more, I would be happy to UPS you an introductory packet and set up a call for us to learn more about one another.
