Many firms only offer support to help repaper an advisor’s book of business, but we know there’s much more to an effective transition than simply repapering your assets.

Before you decide to affiliate with us, you’ll receive an accurate picture of what to expect before, during, and after a transition.

As part of this service, you’ll receive a consultation, which allows us to answer your questions, address your concerns, and lay the groundwork for your next steps.

Our practice transition consultations will cover:

  • An overview of the whole process and the expected amount of time needed to complete the transition.
  • What to expect in terms of client and asset retention.
  • The training and support you should expect before, during, and after the transition.
  • The resources available for your growth and practice development.
  • Ideas on how to communicate the move to your clients and what this means to them.
  • Your expected payout, expenses, and net income after the transition.

You deserve an honest perspective on the business benefits you can expect should you decide to make the move and affiliate with Focus Financial.
