The Authoritative M&A Guide for Financial Advisors

Buying, Selling, & Valuing Financial Practices shows you how to complete a sale or acquisition of a financial advisory practice and have both the buyer and seller walk away with the best possible terms. From the first pages of this unique book, buyers and sellers and merger partners will find detailed information that separately addresses each of their needs, issues and concerns.

From bestselling author and industry influencer David Grau Sr. JD, this masterful guide takes you from the important basics of valuation to the finer points of deal structuring, due diligence, and legal matters, with a depth of coverage and strategic guidance that puts you in another league when you enter the M&A space. Complete with valuable tools, worksheets, and checklists on a companion website, no other resource enables you to:

  • Master the concepts of value and valuation and take this issue “off the table” early in the negotiation process
  • Utilize advanced deal structuring techniques including seller and bank financing strategies
  • Understand how to acquire a book, practice or business based on how it was built, and what it is capable of delivering in the years to come
  • Navigate the complexities of this highly-regulated profession to achieve consistently great results whether buying, selling, or merging

Buying, Selling, & Valuing Financial Practices will ensure that you manage your M&A transaction properly and professionally, aided with the most powerful set of tools available anywhere in the industry, all designed to create a transaction where everyone wins—buyer, seller, and clients.

From the Inside Flap:

The purpose of this book is to help advisors understand how to sell what they've built to someone else for maximum value and at optimum tax rates. It is also written to help those on the other end of the deal, so that buyers may understand how to successfully complete an acquisition on the best possible terms, with minimum risk, while writing off the entire purchase price over time. These are not disparate goals; they are connected in every way and part of a win-win-win strategy that aligns the interests of the buyers, the sellers, and the clients who serve as judge and jury over the entire M&A process. This triple bottom line should be the ultimate goal of every transaction—for the good of this industry, its business owners, and the investing public.

As a seller, you only have one chance to sell a practice you have spent a lifetime building. As a buyer, you're competing with numerous candidates, many with experience and greater resources. To succeed, you need to know more than the other side, and you need an experienced guide. Buying, Selling & Valuing Financial Practices is the complete guidebook for executing your transaction.

Written for sellers and buyers alike, this explicit and detailed road map from a pioneer in the financial advisory profession takes you through the entire process and fully prepares you to maximize your opportunities and avoid costly mistakes.
