There is no better time than the present to evaluate your current broker-dealer relationship, compensation and equity structure if you are looking to own, build and maintain your practice. Just as important, you may be at a stage in your life and career where you are looking to set up a succession arrangement, merger or eventual practice sale to help protect your practice equity, clients and personal retirement goals.
No matter what your motivation for making this key career decision, whether it be compensation, firm culture or quality of life, as an experienced financial advisor it’s important to know you’re making that decision with the support and expertise of people who have been in your shoes. Whatever your career path, call Jon W. Ulin, CFP® at (561) 210-7887 or email [email protected]
Note: The following roles are for financial advisors. If you are an experienced CSA, we welcome you to get in touch with us as well for career opportunities.
Partner with Our Team: Whether you are considering joining a private practice – or owning 100% of your practice equity, we would like to speak with you. Ulin & Co. is located in one of the largest indoor atrium buildings in South Florida. Simply “plug-and-play” into innovative fin-tech tools and seasoned team members between Ulin & Co. and IFP Securities. As a hybrid, multi-custodial RIA, our firm partners with Charles Schwab, Fidelity and Pershing.
ROI: Combining resources with our branch will help you to reach your business growth goals, from increasing client referrals and servicing, to increasing profitability margins and optimizing your time and business operations. Most important, you will feel secure knowing that you are a business owner with a solid backing and infrastructure.
Selling Your Practice: No matter what your motivation for making this key career decision, when you are selling your practice it’s important to know you’re making that decision with the support and expertise of people who fully understand your situation. 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, 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.
