Comprehensive Analysis
for Larger Firms

Certified Appraisals by Industry Experts

Our comprehensive appraisals leverage years of experience and knowledge of the financial services market, combined with a proprietary and robust database of actual comparable sales data, to provide larger firms with a complete and accurate picture of the fair market value of their business. We then supplement this market-based approach with traditional asset-based and income-based appraisal methods.

Financial Advisory Appraisals

Proprietary Approach

Our robust database of actual comparable sales data is a valuable tool for market-based analysis. Combined with traditional appraisal methods, we are able to provide advisors with a comprehensive view and understanding of the full value of their business.

Dedicated to Your Success

Larger advisory firms undergoing appraisals often have multiple owners and multiple service offerings operating under multiple entities. With decades of experience, we are able to fully understand the value of your firm & provide you with the most accurate appraisal possible.
