- Finding the Right Time for Making a Big Move
- Navigating a Move Amidst Market Uncertainty
- Leveraging for the Best Transition Package
We don’t need to tell you just how volatile the financial markets have been this year. You’ve been dealing with it day in and day out, trying to reassure your clients and ease their concerns. It’s been a tough row to hoe, especially if your current broker-dealer has left you to fend for yourself. But as the markets continue to fluctuate, and more advisors start feeling like they would be better cared for at a new broker-dealer, it begs the question of what effect current market volatility will have on advisor transitions.
Many advisors have chosen to put making a move on the backburner during this time of volatility, out of fear of adding more client uncertainty and worry while portfolios are already down. Additionally, increased client-service demands have played a role in advisors choosing to wait until things have settled down before making a move. But does that make sense?
The facts are that despite the volatility and uncertainty surrounding the market, you’ve put in the work to earn your client’s trust and if the move is right for you and ultimately them, then chances are they’ll follow your lead. And keep in mind, when you work with a Transition Specialist like 3xEquity, we do all the heavy lifting – from securing offers to helping define a short-list, to getting our insights on the best packages and prepping for negotiations.
