Are you seeking a regional Chartered IFA firm based in the North West to acquire your IFA clients? This IFA business is experienced in acquisitions, having successfully completed on a dozen purchases to date
North West IFA Client Purchases
They are open to acquiring either client banks from sole trader IFAs or IFA businesses within the North West. As the acquirer is directly authorised, they have open architecture which means clients’ investments would be undisturbed. In addition, the acquirer will leave the existing fee charging model in place for at least 18 months.
Sell and go – Acquisition Deal Option
Offering between 3 – 4 x recurring income; each deal being considered on its own merits. The acquirer is open to considering share purchases or asset purchases. Payment period typically is 50% upfront, followed by 2 deferred payments of 25% at 12 months and 25% at 24 months
Deferred Acquisition Option
They also offer deferred acquisition options for IFAs who want to give up the compliance burden and become an AR for 2 – 5 years. You can trigger the sale of your clients when you are ready. As you will have been part of the business already, it would enable a smooth handover period. For this deferred purchase option, they typically make full payment on completion.
