A win-win for you & Your clients
Whether you want to keep working full-time for a few more years or start a gradual phase-out, our team is here to help you design and execute on your goals.
Meanwhile, your clients get a high level of financial planning, investment management, and tax preparation and planning setting them up for success.
Earning more money is important, but so is your time. The combination of our back office team, the integrated technology, and full-service investment management, you will have more time to spend with your clients and building your business.
Realization of all your hard work
After decades of work and long hours, it's your turn to retire just like you planned for your clients. By already being on the Straight Path platform your client's service and planning seamlessly passes on to our highly qualified advisors. And because client retention is likely to be high this equals a higher valuation and more money for the business you worked so hard to build.
RIA businesses typically get bought at nearly two to three times the average of commission-based businesses. So not only do you make more money up front, you build a more valuable business long-term. Additionally, we help build a succession plan to maximize the value you receive.
