Are you a Financial Advisory business serving ex-Pat clients, preferably based in Spain or Portugal which has IDD/MiFID EU licence seeking retirement and sale of your client bank to an established independent wealth advisory firm whose head office is in Gibraltar?

Sell and retire – acquisition option

This option would suit a small IFA family practice where the owners are retiring and are wanting to sell their client book with up to £30m of funds under management with recurring income revenues of circa £150k.

Acquisition Deal Value

Would consider paying 3 to 4 times recurring income for the right client bank with a payment structure, typically over 30 to 36 months.

This is ideal for Financial Advisors based in Spain or Portugal, although would also suit UK IFA businesses with ex-Pat connections where you:

  • Are considering retirement and want your clients to be looked after by an experienced and well-respected wealth management firm dedicated to helping expats and their families
  • Want independent wealth management advice for your clients
  • Want the reassurance of highly satisfied clients by the acquiring firm as evidenced by reviews with an excellent 4.7 out of 5 rating on Trustpilot (88 reviews)
  • Require your Clients to receive value tax-led ongoing wealth management advisory service
  • Want fair and transparent client charging and a company that does not employ commission hungry self-employed advisers who try to sell life insurance products with very high commission structures
