A retiring advisor finds succession after discovering the true value of his business using the Succession Link platform
"I have looked for years to create a Legacy plan for my clients. I say years because as I look back, the time just seemed to slip away.
Being a financial advisor since 1987, I had various experiences. First with a “Penny Brokerage” firm known as Blind them and Rob them. It only took a month to realize that their are greedy people in this business and I quickly departed to a TSA (Tax Sheltered Annuity) house.
The TSA business was great and I accumulated over 1,000 clients in a few years. The needs of these clients were demanding, as they borrowed and withdrew from their retirement accounts as needs and wants easily overwhelmed them.
The TSA business was a great business, but not for me. I sold my “book” to the TSA house. The owner of the TSA house suggested I would be a good fit for LPL and transferred to LPL on his advice.
At LPL I was able to grow my business by becoming an OSJ and training new advisors. The OSJ was successful and I sold the OSJ to an advisor I had trained, while keeping 35 families that I enjoyed working with. Both my clients and myself grew old together. The running joke was who was going to die first, so far I was winning, as I sadly lost clients. Now, I had a smaller practice and older clients we were both concerned about the future, I needed a plan that would keep them safe. I worked alone and did not meet other like minded advisors; where do you meet them? Then I registerd with Succession Link. I had 48 hits. I guess it was like a dating site. I communicated with about 15 advisors, looked them up on Broker Check, and then sat down with 6 of them. I think I found a good fit and we are now engaged.
Thank you Succession Link, I discovered the value of my business, in your marketplace. I now think that the match concept is great and I believe I have found my new partner for my loyal clients."
