Are you a directly authorised IFA with DB Pension Transfer permissions looking to sell your shares?

Acquisition options

Sell and retire or sell and stay

Acquisition Deal Value

Would consider paying 3 to 4 times recurring income for the right client bank and potentially more for the shell company where the assets under management is below £10m.
