Are you a Surrey based Financial Advisor with c£15m FuM seeking retirement from financial services and wanting to sell to a local IFA?

The Acquiring Company

A local Independent financial advisor who has run his own advisory business for over 20 years is seeking to acquire a small client bank of up to c£15m FuM. With capital in the bank to fund the upfront payment and being able to fully absorb any acquired clients will be able to use the recurring income to fund deferred payments at the end of years 1 & 2.

Having open architecture will allow him to maintain acquired clients on existing investment mandates.

His ethos would be to make little changes to investments or charging structure initially as his main aim is to build strong relationships with the acquired clients to maximise retention.

The ideal situation would be a one-person IFA ready to retire with c£10m – £15m FuM, although happy to consider lower or higher value client banks.

Available Acquisition Options:

Sell and Retire

This would suit a Financial Advisor looking to give up being an Authorised Adviser, although be available for handover meetings to ensure there is a smooth transition.

Acquisition Deal Value

Offering a competitive acquisition deal of typically c3.5 to 4 times recurring income payment with 50% upfront followed by 2 deferred payments of 25% after the 1st and 2ndanniversaries.

This is ideal for Financial Advisors:

  • Considering retirement
  • Would like a structured handover that is sensitive to your clients and passing clients to a local adviser offering attentive client service proposition
  • Only want to deal with a local Surrey based IFA
  • Want an independent financial adviser with Open Architecture, where clients can remain on existing investment mandates and charging structures

Acquisition Benefits
