Financial Advisor Career Center
Are you seeking to join an established, independent firm in South Florida, while partnering with a leading, innovative, multi-custodial RIA and broker/dealer? Working with Ulin & Co. Wealth Management and IFP Securities, you can maintain 100% of your practice equity as a business owner – combined with our turn-key resources and office space, or sell your practice.
Jon Ulin, CFP® is founder of Ulin & Co. Wealth Management and serves as Managing Principal with over 20+ years of experience working with national wires houses to the independent channel. As an independently owned firm, Ulin & Co. utilizes nationally known partners like Charles Schwab, Fidelity Investments and Pershing LLC to provide client access to best-in-class solutions, leading-edge technology and management.
As fee-based fiduciary advisors, our team takes a holistic approach to promote actions taken in the “best interest” of clients’ long-term retirement and comprehensive planning needs. Acting as both an advocate and “personal CFO,” we work with successful individuals, families, retirees and business owners to provide multi-generational planning and guidance while providing concierge-level service at every step.
Our firm is focused to help our clients, advisors and employees reach their true potential. Be part of an inclusive, collaborative team and healthy culture that rewards you for your contributions while working with other talented individuals who share your passion for doing great work. We are not your typical ‘suit & tie’ wire house persona and are in growth mode.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sell 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.
