I am in the early stages of organizing a move to the independent side of the business. My investment mix is primarily managed money, I have one junior partner and we both hold CFP designations. We have a clean U4, and can move over $200,000,000 when the opportunity is right. I plan to be in the business for another 25 years, as does my partner and we have 3 other established advisors that would like to join us when we establish the new firm. I would like to execute this plan in conjunction with buying a substantial existing book of business, either in the Chicago or Los Angeles market. Please contact me if you would like to discuss further. Thank you.
