Succession Readiness Assessment

Do you have a vision for the future of your firm?

As an owner of a financial advisory practice, preparing for your future and the
future of your firm, means succession planning. But the term ‘succession’ applies to
a much wider set of possibilities than merely retirement preparation. A succession
plan can and should be developed to prepare for several different scenarios you
might not have considered.

Who should consider establishing a succession plan?

  • Owners who in the next 5-10 years want to have more time for themselves or to work in a different capacity (i.e., spend more time with clients or family)
  • Owners within the ‘succession red zone’ (i.e. those seeking to retire within the next 3-5 years)
  • Owners looking to expand their service offerings and grow/scale their business
  • Owners looking to establish career paths for their employees and “care paths” for their clients should they abruptly be forced to stop working
