Succession planning is something every advisor should think about and make arrangements for, yet over half of advisors aren’t engaged in the process at all. To ensure your clients are taken care of to your highest standards after you leave your practice—either willingly or suddenly—having a comprehensive plan in place, and ideally in some level of process, is key. Studies have shown the best advisor match for your clients is made when your successor is chosen from within your own firm. With an abundance of financial programs being established at colleges and universities across the country, the next generation of financial advisor, whether brand new to the job market or career-changers, is one option to explore. The other is looking closer to home. In this session, the owners of two local firms and their co-owners—who also happen to be family—, talk with Kelli Cruz of Pepin Consulting, about their succession plans and the strategies behind them. You’ll take away insights into and perspective that will allow you to hit the ground running with your own plan to safeguard your clients’ wealth and best interests.
