Continunity, Succession & Acquisition Planning
- Dedicated Professionals – Securities America has a Director of Practice Succession and Acquisition designated as a point person to assist advisors in planning for and implementing the best possible continuity and succession plan for their situation.
In the past nine years, we have assisted more than 80 advisors in their retirement and have helped more than 300 advisors create continuity plans for their practice.
- Continuity Plans – When an advisor suddenly face a long-term illness or permanent disability, a continuity plan answers the specifics of “what if” to ensure the business remains viable until the advisor can return or the business can be sold. Securities America encourages all advisors to have a continuity plan on file with us so that in an emergency, we know who to work with to care for clients.
- Succession Plans – Since 1999 Securities America has partnered with the pioneer and industry leader, FP Transition Services, in assisting advisors by providing practice valuations, continuity and succession planning services.
Securities America's parent company, Ladenburg Thalmann, provides a listing site to search for a continuity partner, sell a practice or find a practice for sale within the Ladenburg Thalmann family of independent broker-dealers.
- Practice Acquisitions – Securities America is a leader in helping growth-oriented advisors expand their business by acquiring and integrating compatible practices. To help advisors, Securities America offers a large library of practice acquisition information, including due diligence and valuation worksheets, sample agreements, templates for merger and transition planning, processes for converting from commission to fees and white papers.
