I would take good care of your clients! I have more than 20 years' experience as a Wealth Advisor and Certified Financial Planner. I want to buy an IIROC based business, fee-based preferred. I am a licensed Portfolio Manager, specializing in environmentally sustainable / socially responsible / good governance investments. Ideally the selling advisor is looking for a caring home for the clients with whom they have developed a close relationship over many years. I would be prepared to work with the selling advisor over 1-2 years to maximize client retention, and my firm may be able to provide initial transition support in addition to a buy-out package.
