Seeking representatives of high character, selling a quality Fee-based/only book in Northern CA (East Bay or Central Valley).
We have previously purchased two books of business with very high retention rates. Both purchases were structured as a short-term "Earn-Out", to the benefit of both buyer and seller. One partial-book seller was so pleased, three years in, he sold us his sizable remaining book. The seller must be willing to participate in moving the book across to maintain continuity and probably structuring purchase similar to previous acquisitions.
Now in our 36th year, we are CFPs with our own in-house succession established. We enjoy a very strong reputation, experiencing 13% annualized business growth for the last 10 years. We provide Financial Planning and other services as a value-added part of the Investment Advisory management service/experience. We are now accepting only IA business and converting over the small remainder of non-IA business.
We have built the business on a very warm, personalized approach to client relationships, focusing on a strong risk-adjusted approach to active management. Our organic growth is from client, CPA, and Attorney referrals.
