Exit Strategy Option – Sell and Go

You would benefit from a local financial planning business with the established infrastructure in place to seamlessly takeover the servicing of your clients; whilst benefiting from a capital event for your client bank.

Acquisition Option – Sell and Stay

If you are an existing Financial Advisor and own your client bank, you could receive a capital event for your clients and continue to work within a highly effective financial planning business. Through their established infrastructure, you would benefit from the compliance burden being lifted off your shoulders, backed by their dedicated Paraplanners and Administrators and be part of their positive team environment to share ideas.

Acquisition Option – Deferred Sale

A further option available is to join the firm with a deferred sale and purchase agreement in place. This would enable you to ensure optimum value is achieved during your period of deferment.
