10 Steps to Prepare to Buy a Practice

Topic: 10 Steps to Prepare to Buy a Practice

When: Tuesday, October 29th, 2019, 1:00 p.m. ET

Panelists: Anthony Whitbeck, CEO and President of Advisor Legacy Group, and Todd Doherty, M&A Expert for Advisor Legacy Group

Acquisitions are an excellent way to grow your financial advisor practice quickly. Not only does it allow you to gain valuable market share, when done well, acquisitions also have the ability to improve your revenue and your profitability. Unfortunately, more often than not, buyers rush headlong into a purchase decision and either sabotage an opportunity to buy a great book of business, purchase the wrong book of business, or poorly manage the transition and lose clients in the process. This happens because most buyers, even those who have purchased before, aren’t really prepared for the acquisition. In this webinar, Anthony Whitbeck and Todd Doherty will review steps to take to prepare for an acquisition.

Most of those stories gloss over the issues, with a series of talking heads predicting great calamities, until the next heavily hyped topic distracts everyone’s attention.
Dealing with Panicked Clients

Dealing with Panicked Clients

Such words are uttered by Kevin Bacon during the climax of the movie Animal House (1978), as his character – the antagonistic Chip Diller – helplessly attempts to address a fleeing mob of shrieking parade-goers.  The context of the scene notwithstanding, this is often how it can feel when having to deal with panicking clients; as if your words are but one addition to an entire mountain of noise, quickly drowned out and just as quickly forgotten.
