Compliance

Our Compliance Team is accessible to our network because, without you and your practice, we’d be looking for new jobs (and we like these jobs). We know that business moves quickly; and timely, accurate answers are essential (we’re talking same-day in most cases). We know that most “asks” come from a desire to find a unique solution for your clients, so we try to get to “yes.” If we can’t find a path to “yes” we’ll be transparent with you and explain exactly why. Finally, we know that your time is valuable; so, we strive to be as efficient as possible by leveraging technology like SmartRIA and Docusign as well as being proactive rather than reactive whenever possible.

Cheval

Drastic market corrections happen much more often than traditional equity portfolios are prepared for. Client portfolios can take years to recover from these drastic corrections. If a client is close to retirement or in retirement, this is dangerous and unacceptable. That is where Cheval steps in. The strategies within our Cheval program provide broad exposure to the equity markets, in a prudent and protected manner by using options to limit the downside risk.

Disciplined
Momentum

Stocks that are going up in value tend to continue to go up in value despite their intrinsic valuation. This is called momentum investing. However, the problem with this investment philosophy is that when the market starts to price in risk and stocks trade toward their intrinsic valuations, stock prices can come crashing down as fast as they went up. Our disciplined momentum strategy uses a rules-based approach to find stocks that display momentum characteristics but are not significantly overvalued.

Separately Managed Account Strategies run by third-party managers

We have partnered with outside asset managers including Eaton Vance, Nuveen, and Alliance Bernstein to give our advisors access to their Separately Managed Account Strategies at very favorable prices.

Mutual Fund and ETF Strategies

ARC Mutual Fund Models

The ARC Mutual Fund Model Program consists of an active asset management solution, which provides a diverse exposure to multiple asset classes through the use of mutual funds. The models are tactical in nature, seeking to provide overexposure to sub-asset classes, which the asset management team deems desirable given market conditions. Within each sub-asset class, the models do not rely solely on past performance for investment decisions. Instead, they rely on an evaluation of each fund’s investment process, current holdings, factor exposures, and performance in stress tests. There are 9 mutual fund models based on client risk tolerance.

ARC ETF Models

Much like the mutual fund models, the ARC ETF Model Program consists of an active asset management solution, which provides a diverse exposure to multiple asset classes through the use of ETFs. The models are tactical in nature, seeking to provide overexposure to sub-asset classes, which the asset management team deems desirable given market conditions. Within each sub-asset class, the models do not rely solely on past performance for investment decisions. Instead, they rely on an evaluation of each fund’s investment process, current holdings, factor exposures, and performance in stress tests. There are 5 ETF models based on client risk tolerance.

ARC SMART Models

SMART 'Strategic Management Allocation Review Team': SMART is an advisory program that offers clients a professionally managed mutual fund, closed-end fund, and ETF asset allocation program. The SMART strategy consists of 16 actively managed model portfolios, each of which has a different investment objective (for example, portfolios may be structured for tax efficiency, to generate current income or for ESG investing). Each portfolio is intended to achieve returns similar or better than a correlated benchmark, but with less volatility. Portfolios may invest in mutual funds, ETFs and closed-end funds (CEFs).

Why a Certified

Financial Planner (CFP®)?

Education

Unlike many financial advisors, CFP® professionals must develop their theoretical and practical knowledge by completing a comprehensive course of study at a college or university offering a financial planning curriculum approved by CFP Board. Applicants may also satisfy the education requirement by submitting a transcript review or previous financial planning-related course work. Or, they can show that they have attained certain professional designations or academic degrees that cover the important subjects in CFP Board’s financial planning curriculum.

Examination

CFP® professionals must pass the comprehensive CFP® Certification Exam, which tests their abilities to apply financial planning knowledge to real-life situations. The exam covers the financial planning process, tax planning, employee benefits and retirement planning, estate planning, investment management, and insurance. This comprehensive exam ensures that a CFP® professional is highly qualified to develop a plan for your finances.

Experience

CFP® professionals complete several years of experience related to delivering financial planning services to clients before earning the right to use the CFP® certification trademarks. This hands-on experience guarantees that CFP® professionals have practical financial planning knowledge, so you can count on them to help you create a realistic financial plan that fits your individual needs.

Ethics

When it comes to ethics and professional responsibility, CFP® professionals are held to the highest of standards, as outlined in CFP Board's Standards of Professional Conduct. They are obliged to uphold the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, professionalism, and diligence as outlined in CFP Board’s Code of Ethics. The Rules of Conduct always requires CFP® professionals to put your interests ahead of their own and to provide their financial planning services as a “fiduciary”—acting in the best interest of their financial planning clients. CFP® professionals are subject to CFP Board sanctions if they violate these standards.

Succession

Planning

When executed properly, Succession Planning can be a great building model. When executed improperly, it can be a disaster.

Statistically, there are 40 advisors who want to buy a practice for every 1 person who wants to sell a practice.
This means you must be able to set yourself apart and elevate yourself above other buyers to even get on the short list.

Having experience and becoming an expert is a necessity. Sometimes a little luck helps as well.

Purchasing a practice is simple if you know the following the steps:

  1. Get educated. This will help you iron out exactly what you want and don’t want.
  2. Find a seller or someone in your network that may be interested in selling.
  3. Dig deep into the book and see if it’s what you’re looking for.
  4. Discuss pricing and transition; if both the seller and the buyer agree on both, move forward with the deal.
  5. Ensure that all legal documents, financing, and transition plans are detailed and organized.
  6. Finalize documents, financing and begin a detailed and organized transition plan.

handing off the baton image

No single step is especially difficult to execute but executing all the steps, and doing it well, is time consuming, and often frustrating.

When executed properly, real free cash flow, asset growth, and long-term book wealth can be accomplished in under a year.

Can you imagine how long it would take to grow 30-50 Million in net new assets from prospecting alone?

Buying a practice can occur within 30 days or less, which is far better than knocking on doors.

The downside can be the 500-750k loan obligation and if you don’t transition the book well, instead of free cash flow, you could be upside down.

This is our way of saying: we’ve been through this process a dozen times while planning and forming for the future. We’ve executed some things well, and we’ve botched some completely, but our mistakes always translate into positive learning opportunities.

We are willing to help people in our network not only learn the process, but also to draw from our experiences to help them get through the process successfully.

If you’re willing to learn and work, we are willing to work next to you to help you purchase a book successfully.
