Continuity Solutions™ is an incredible collaboration of top talented Industry experts who have come together to provide an all-encompassing solution which insures a predictable succession process for Advisors hoping to bring a family member or protégé into their practice. Continuity Solutions™ has developed and refined a turnkey approach called The Succession 360 Process™ which takes a holistic approach to developing the NextGeneration of talent within family practices.
Over the years, the faculty of Continuity Solutions™ has seen firsthand the mistakes made that undermine an effective succession.

  1. The Sr. Advisor wanting it more than the Family Member. Is he/she a good fit? Do they really understand the mindset of the Millennial?
  2. Why wealth management training alone is just the beginning? The protégé needs mastery in practice management and client acquisition.
  3. Optics of nepotism and the negative impact on client loyalty.
  4. The entitlement mentality knowing that comes with thinking they deserve it vs. the empowerment mentality knowing they have to earn it.
  5. Ineffective allocation of time, resources and expertise creates a 1 + 1 = 1.5 outcome.
  6. Unintended consequences on clients and team members due to poor planning, communication and execution in the transition.
  7. The fallout of the value of the practice and the overall client experience when the protégé fails to meet or exceed expectations.
