Solution

After a period of growth, firms need to either hire more advisors or shoulder the extra work themselves, which means working nights and weekends. Neither choice is practical.
Facet works with such firms to segment their practice and purchase all clients that create scarcity of their time or are no longer profitable for the firm.
As a result, firms are able to focus on their sweet spot of clients with over $250k of AUM, giving every client additional service and attention while also increasing firm profitability.

Solution

A second generation of owners assume the reins of a large RIA. To fund the transition of ownership they need to grow their cash flow and valuation.
They can implement a minimum AUM, segment their clients and partner with Facet to support clients that fall outside the segmentation criteria.
As a result, the new owners can focus their time on strategic priorities and segments. The result: increased profitability.

Solution

A second generation of owners assume the reins of a large RIA. To fund the transition of ownership they need to grow their cash flow and valuation.
They can implement a minimum AUM, segment their clients and sell the segment below their stated minimum to Facet.
As a result, the new owners can focus their newly freed time to grow their higher net worth segments, which in turn increases referrals. The above scenario increases account profitability and allows the new generation to buy-out their shares with the increased cash flow.

Increase Valuation

Typical Firm Profile

Firms ready to take the next leap, looking to enhance their bottom line

$400M
AUM

Professionals

Solution

An RIA firm hires additional staff and increases fixed costs as part of their strategic growth plan. The profit margins get depressed. Even with the newly added staff the firm still has too many smaller accounts and de facto there’s no capacity to pursue growth in profitable segments.
The firm can sell smaller accounts to Facet thus freeing up capacity to develop new, higher AUM clients and increase profitability quickly.
Since operating margins are a key variable in the firm valuation, the increased profitability ultimately improves the firm valuation.
