Merger or Acquisition
Are you contemplating a change? Maybe you’re ready for retirement or perhaps a career change. Whatever the reason, you’ll want to plan for your clients’ future as well.
At Stratos, there are many M&A options from a minority investment to a complete acquisition. We work with you to find the best option for you, your employees, and your clients.
Together, let’s discuss how Stratos can serve as a beneficial solution for you and for your clients.
Helping You Take Control of Your Future.
We are committed to truly understanding the goals of our advisors so that we can help them achieve their own version of success. This commitment starts at day one, when you join Stratos to your last day, when you pass it on as you see fit.
And when you’re ready to grow, we’ll help you through each stage of acquiring another practice or book of business. And when you’re ready to retire, we’ll help you establish a business succession plan – building long-term value that will help you maximize the rewards of your years of hard work.
Our succession consulting assists you in creating appropriate exit strategies, identifying buyers and finding the right financing.
We’ll help you look for buyers. We’ll help you determine your options when you structure the terms of the agreement. These are critical issues in estate planning – and we stand beside you every step of the way, helping you define the steps toward implementation of a solid plan.
For advisors looking to expand, we offer strategic acquisition coaching to help you outline and execute your own acquisition strategies. We offer consulting on how to structure these deals, perform due diligence and create purchase agreements. Let us help you close the deal – and then make it work.
Find out what your practice is worth. Take the guesswork out of business valuation by taking advantage of consultative services that are precisely targeted to your needs as a financial professional.
What Advisors Say...
Baton Rouge, LA
No matter which way you slice and dice it, it costs a lot of money to run an office and you might be somewhere around 10 to 15 percentage points of revenue to run a practice depending on trading volume. What matters is where you NET out at the end of the day. I could have gone direct to LPL and probably be at a 92% or 93% payout based on my production and Branch bonuses; however, for that extra four or five percent that I'm giving up, which is $50,000 on $1,000,000 of production, there is no way I would be able to have concierge-level service for technology and compliance, human resources, marketing, practice acquisition, different platforms, institutional partners at Fidelity and Schwab, like I do through Stratos.
“From the beginning of my time with Stratos, Jeff Concepcion and his team at the home office have been true partners in my business. Their willingness to help and the sincerity shown, has never waivered. Stratos goes above and beyond in order to try to provide everything that I need for my business and my clients. The Stratos staff really does make the difference.”
