SRG Announces Partnership with SCF Securities – January 29, 2014

SCF Securities and Succession Resource Group Team to Expand Acquisition/Succession Resources

(PORTLAND, OR – January 29, 2014) – Succession Resource Group, Inc. (SRG), the proven leader of acquisition and succession solutions and consulting for advisors in the financial services industry, is pleased to announce a new strategic alliance with SCF Securities, Inc., one of the industry’s premier boutique broker-dealers based in Fresno, California.

The newly formed alliance will bring the goals of SRG and SCF Securities together by helping SCF advisors acquire more external practices/assets as well as help SCF as a firm, retain more of their existing advisors and assets through SRG’s proactive consulting, resources, information, and reduced fees that are part of the alliance. According to Alan Carlisle, Chief Investment Officer at SCF Securities, “We are committed to helping ensure our advisors have the resources they need to grow their firm and transfer the relationship they’ve built with clients to their successor. We see succession planning as a critical part of both our firm’s long-term success, as well as our advisor’s. That is why we have partnered with SRG.”

Founder & CEO David Grau Jr., MBA of SRG said his firm is excited about the alliance with SCF Securities and the opportunity to support a company that has such a close working relationship with its advisors around the country. David went on to say, “At the end of the day, the work we do with advisors as succession planning consultants is not about a transaction, it’s about a transition of trust. We are pleased to have a partner in SCF that is committing resources to make sure their advisors are building businesses that will be able to serve multiple generations of clients.”

While popular industry topics, acquisition and succession planning have proven challenging issues for advisors and their broker-dealer/custodians. In the past, advisors have ignored the issue of succession planning until retirement; ultimately, forced to auction off their business and client relationships for far less than the practice’s true value and often to unworthy successors. Today, SRG is helping advisors start to plan for their succession earlier and view it as a growth tool, but the trend toward preemptive advisor succession planning has been gradual according to executives at SRG. The expertise and resources of SRG, combined with SCF Securities’ internal commitment to succession planning should help the firm avoid the coming industry-wide wave of retiring advisors and the ensuing client/advisor attrition.
