While the freedom and flexibility of the independent space is attractive to many, it’s the long-term economic potential that’s the real draw for entrepreneurial-minded advisors.
An expanded landscape has paved the way for breakaway advisors to monetize their businesses in the short-term, with a growing number of ways to fund start up, de-risk a move, and replace lost unvested deferred comp.
For those with their sights set on longer-term goals, the potential has become even greater. As the delta between taking a recruiting deal versus building an independent enterprise diminishes, more advisors are taking the leap than ever before. And M&A in the space has never been more active.
What’s behind the massive growth of the space? What’s the real long-term potential for advisors considering a leap to independence?
