Acquisition Options

This option would suit Financial Advisers who are ready to exit whilst being available in an ‘Ambassadorial’ capacity to achieve a smooth handover of clients as well as being on hand during the buyout period, if necessary, to enhance client retention.

‘Sell and Stay’

Financial Advisers who are not ready to stop advising immediately and want to be fully involved with the transition would suit this option. Thus, those that want a capital event now, but happy to stay on as an authorised Adviser under the new Acquirer post sale to embed the transition through ongoing servicing and subsequently to introduce your clients to the new adviser who will assume responsibility for future relationship.

This option would suit SME firms where there are existing Financial Advisers and support staff and would be part of the sale.
