I have been in the financial services industry since 2000. I am three years into a transition from working for a large insurance company to being an independent advisor. My business is quickly transitioning from a commissioned based business to an advisory based business. My current mix is about 50/50. I am searching for firms looking to transition out of their practice who want to make sure their clients are in the hands of a trustworthy, clients come first, advisor. I have 20 plus years until I am thinking of making the change from buyer to seller so any firm that considers me as their successor can be certain their clients will have the same advisor for many years.
