Similarly we offer a solution for planners contemplating an exit from the industry or looking for a buyer for their business to not only ensure they secure their future but importantly to ensure that their clients are left in the best possible hands.

The benefit of the Client Relationship Transition Agreement (CRTA) which provides you with a guaranteed buyer (Private Wealth Management) for your business on your retirement (or on resignation, serving a two year transition period) - provided that certain conditions are met and based on valuation criteria which you can measure against regular valuations during the course of your employment. This gives you an additional lump sum at retirement while ensuring the smooth transition of your clients into the Private Wealth Management corporatised model.

Private Wealth Management operates two related, yet diverse businesses. The Entrepreneurial Model provides Financial Planners with the opportunity to create and manage their own practice within Private Wealth Management. However, we recognise that some Financial Planners may be more comfortable managing clients on behalf of Private Wealth Management. Under the Corporatised Model the Financial Planner is salaried (with some incentives for exceeding expectations) and maintains the relationships with clients on behalf of Private Wealth Management as salaried employee.

Ability to make use of the General Practice construct (for those businesses with a large client base), by introducing a junior financial planner/associate into your business to ensure that all clients are contacted and taken through our value proposition.
