Continuity and succession planning is widely acknowledged as a best practice within the industry. With the issuance of a model rule by NASAA for state regulators and the recently proposed rule by the SEC, it is quickly becoming a regulatory requirement. However, the majority of advisors do not have a viable plan in place and there are very few options available to advisors who wish to retain their independence. That is why Pinnacle Advisor Solutions elected to add continuity and succession planning to its offering to independent investment advisors.
PRISM (Continuity Planning) Our simple, risk-free continuity planning solution is designed to protect your clients and your family in the event of death or disability. Continue to run your practice as you always have comfortable knowing your clients will have the opportunity to become clients of industry leading wealth management firm Pinnacle Advisory Group and can receive the same high level of service as you provided. You and your family will also have the opportunity to receive market value for your firm.
PRISMPlus (Succession Planning) Our succession planning solution builds on PRISM by also preparing for a voluntary exit. Ensure a smooth transition by offering clients the opportunity to move onto the Pinnacle platform while you still run the firm. Pinnacle handles the busywork associated with investments, operations, compliance and other services on a private label basis. You focus on client facing activities while enjoying some new found lifestyle. You continue to own 100% of your clients, 100% of your brand, and 100% of firm equity and economics until you decide to retire.
