Referral Partner Programs
Why This is Important to You
Sourcing new clients is one of the greatest challenges facing most advisors and advisory practices. The challenge grows as firms sharpen their focus on the vaunted high net worth investor and the number of firms trying to serve this segment virtually explodes.
For most advisors, referrals from clients and other centers of influence provide the best path toward adding coveted high net worth investors to their practice. The logic is pretty simple, the more quality referral sources you have; the more likely you are to reach your goals.
One often-overlooked lucrative repository of such clients can be found in your local bank.
How We Work With You
We recommend that you “capture the fort” instead of a soldier at a time. We help those unfamiliar with the nuances of banking and the quirkiness of bankers, navigate the minefield between your practice and that cache of new relationships and assets. Developing one of these successful alliances could provide you with years of a steady stream of qualified referrals. Think Amway on steroids.
We help you identify which banks to approach and exactly how to approach them. We speak both banker and advisor helping you bridge the gap between what are two distinct businesses with even more distinct cultures.
We will meet with the bankers or develop impactful presentations that you can use to quickly pinpoint and address what is important to them. Bankers’ objectives, fears and proclivities are often far different than you might expect.
We help develop the protocols, processes, legalese and other structural components, including fee sharing, that are critical to success.
We work diligently to manage the expectations of both parties to create an alliance that can span decades.
We continue our work with both parties to ensure each is maximizing the available opportunities.
What This Means For You
- A lucrative, incremental new source of clients leading to increased income and profits
- An alliance with a partner than can help your existing client with traditional banking solutions
- A potential method for attracting new advisors to your practice

- You reduce the number of competitors in your marketplace
- You can test-drive a relationship with a potential buyer of your practice (if succession is an interest or goal).
