Many advisors equate the term “Succession Planning” with just selling a practice and or retirement. While to a certain extent this may be true, the sale of a practice is merely the event, and is one of the many components.
Succession planning is an involved process that allows business owners to value their firm, protect it, and then over a predetermined timeline, create a controlled transition and transfer of business to a new advisor-team for an agreed upon price.
More than just the numbers and payout, you want to make sure that the transaction is structured and executed seamlessly to ensure that client relationships are transferred intact – and full value is achieved for both buyer and seller.
Knowing the reputation, firm culture, expertise, business structure, technology, marketing, accounting, compliance and client service systems provided by your successor advisor for your trusted clients – should be as important to you – as the transfer of your liquid assets.
