By Mindy Diamond, WealthManagement.com – Rising above the day-to-day tasks of your “job” to invest time in thoughtful strategizing and planning can be the gamechanger you’ve been looking for.
Next gen Tom Stadum realized that he had a long runway and greater opportunity beyond UBS. So once his partner/father fulfilled the obligations of his retirement agreement, Tom left to build independent firm Fjell Capital with Sanctuary Wealth.
By Mindy Diamond, WealthManagement.com – No doubt that changing market conditions, looming regulatory and tax law modifications, asset allocation and client requirements weigh heavily on the minds of all advisors—but for those considering change, there’s even more that they’re losing sleep over.
By Mindy Diamond, Forbes.com – Just like a marriage, the early years of a partnership often reflect the initial values and ideals you shared as a courting couple. Yet people and circumstances evolve over time, so unless you grow together, you’re likely to grow apart.
While comfortable at UBS a decade ago, Ahmie Baum started to see things a bit differently when his son Brian joined the business. It was an awakening that made this wirehouse veteran reevaluate everything, and propelled his leap to independence.
By Deborah Aronson, WealthManagement.com – Wirehouse retire-in-place or sunset programs offer senior financial advisors access to their firms’ built-in succession plans and a pathway to unlocking liquidity, while next gen advisors stand to grow their asset base. But rather than just sign on the dotted line, next gen inheritors (and their senior partners) are hitting the pause button and striving to be more educated consumers.
Mindy Diamond and Louis Diamond Quoted – By Ian Wenik, Citywire – RIA consulting and recruiting firm Diamond Consultants is keeping things in the family. The firm’s founder, Mindy Diamond, has elected to relinquish the title of president to her son, Louis, while retaining her CEO role. Louis Diamond will take over responsibility for Diamond Consultants’ day-to-day operations and advisor consulting practice, the company said.
By Mindy Diamond, Forbes.com – Almost every business journey starts the same way: An ambitious entrepreneur dreams of building an enterprise that will stand the test of time. However, I’ve seen far too many leaders — particularly those in the wealth management space — achieve their dreams of building a successful business, only to recognize the need to create a succession plan far too late in their journey. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Mindy Diamond and Louis Diamond Quoted – By Janet Levaux and Jeff Berman, ThinkAdvisor – Diamond Consultants has named Louis Diamond as its new president. Louis, previously executive vice president, takes the baton from Mindy Diamond, who remains CEO of the advisor recruiting and search firm she founded in 1998. The mother and son will continue to serve as consultants to advisors considering their career options.
Louis Diamond Quoted – By Diana Britton, WealthManagement.com – While Chicago-headquartered Hightower’s core strategy continues to be acquiring standalone registered investment advisors, the firm has recently made a foray into the independent broker/dealer channel, and CEO Bob Oros expects it to be a complementary area of growth for the firm going forward. The move would certainly expand the universe of potential acquisitions.
