Our practice is primarily fee-based. We are affiliated with a small RIA/BD. We are potentially interested in a merger with firms who can complement what we're doing. We use Riskalyze, TD Ameritrade as custodian, Money Guide Pro, Redtail. We have a relatively lean organization and have negotiated a great payout structure. We just moved to this RIA/BD after a lengthy search process so are not interested in a situation where we would be asked to move to a new RIA or BD. Most appropriate partner would be one of a similar size range who would be open to a new RIA/BD relationship that probably will provide a nice pay raise and who is interested in a systematic transition.
