Our multichannel advantage puts you in the driver’s seat, giving you the choice to serve your clients in the manner that maximizes your potential and theirs.

Are you looking for more independence in your practice?

You have the choice. We have the resources to help you grow.

Teaming and Succession

From initiation to succession, the Teams and Succession Consulting Group can help your business thrive. Through one-on-one or group consultations, and by utilizing the latest business-planning software, we’ll guide you through the ins and outs of teaming and succession planning. Financial advisors who take advantage of teaming have benefited from these opportunities:

  • Unique benefits package
  • Well-defined team agreements
  • Dedicated support structure (i.e., coaching/programming)

Teaming also provides an opportunity to begin the process of introducing clients to other financial advisors who may succeed you. Our industry-leading Summit Program offers incentives for both retiring and receiving financial advisors and, at its core, is designed to ensure the ongoing satisfaction of clients. After years of service to your clients, you should have the freedom to retire how you want and when you want.
