Advisor Due Diligence Checklist

[Checklist] Due Diligence Checklist for Advisors


Stay on track.

Whether you decide to buy or sell a financial advisory practice, it can be complicated and there will be many moving pieces to keep track of and negotiate. Succession Resource Group's Due Diligence Checklist provides a comprehensive list of some of the most commonly asked for items to review before buying/selling a financial services practice. As you negotiate a deal, due diligence periods typically range between one week up to four weeks, so it is important to make sure you have a reliable list of items to review before consummating a purchase.

Using this checklist as a guide with your attorney/accountant, you can be sure you review at least the basic components of the practice and know who you are considering doing a deal with before final negotiations and signing a purchase/sale/merger agreement.
