Selling Your Wealth Management Practice Without Retiring

Many of our clients at SkyView challenge the conventional image of a seller in the wealth management industry. Unlike the typical notion of sellers being on the brink of retirement, numerous successful sales have involved clients who are far from retirement age. Selling your practice is a strategic move to monetize your hard work, achieve financial independence, and find emotional satisfaction. It doesn't have to mean stepping away from the wealth management industry; you can remain active with your practice and clients.

Innovative Selling Strategies with SkyView

Partial Sale: Retain Ownership and Stay Involved in the Business

A partial sale allows you to retain a significant stake in your practice while bringing in new investors or partners. This strategy enables you to monetize a portion of your business without fully exiting the industry. By doing so, you continue to benefit from the growth and success of the practice while enjoying increased liquidity.

Scheduled Internal Sale: Empower Your Growing Team

A scheduled internal sale, also known as a tranche sale, involves selling ownership portions to your growing team at set intervals, typically completed in 5 to 20 years. This method fosters a sense of ownership and loyalty among your team members, ensuring the continuity of your practice. It also provides a structured and predictable exit strategy, allowing you to gradually transition out of the business while securing its future.

Sell & Stay: Continue Consulting and Working with Your Clients

The sell & stay model allows you to transfer ownership of your practice while continuing to work with your clients in a consulting capacity. This approach provides the best of both worlds: financial independence and the opportunity to remain active in the industry. You can leverage your expertise and relationships to contribute to the practice’s success, even after the ownership transition.

The Benefits of Selling Without Retiring

Financial Independence

Selling your practice can provide you with the financial independence to pursue new opportunities, whether within or outside the wealth management industry. By monetizing your hard work, you can secure your financial future and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Emotional Satisfaction

Many practitioners find emotional satisfaction in knowing that their practice will continue to thrive under new ownership. By selecting the right selling strategy, you can ensure that your clients and team members are well taken care of, providing peace of mind and a sense of accomplishment.

Continued Professional Growth

Selling your practice does not mean the end of your professional journey. On the contrary, it can open up new avenues for growth and development. Whether you choose to stay involved in your practice, take on a consulting role, or pursue new ventures, the possibilities are endless.
