Seller Support Program

Seller Support is designed to help facilitate the sale of your practice. We work to help you position your practice for maximum value and fit. Seller Support pairs you with an LPL expert who specializes in the sale of advisor practices and will be your guide for monetizing and generating liquidity. We work with you to understand your motivations and objectives for selling your business, including:

  • Helping you define your ideal buyer
  • Preparing your practice for sale and bringing your book to market
  • Sourcing and screening potential buyers and initiating contact
  • Assisting with negotiating and selecting your final partner
  • Guiding you through finalizing the terms of your deal

Seller Support assesses a 2% success fee with no additional charge for Deal Support, and includes a comprehensive business valuation.

The Premium Buyer Program focuses on enhancing your position as a qualified buyer by providing premium access to deal flow, an annual valuation, discounts on financing and deal execution, and access to buyer resources.

M&A Deal Support

When you’re ready to execute your deal, M&A Deal Support delivers a comprehensive experience to guide you through the process. You’ll have the support of a team with expertise in advisor mergers and acquisitions, with the benefit of a single point of contact to help you navigate along the way.
