Many individuals who operate their own registered investment adviser firms have a tendency to delay succession planning and deal almost exclusively with shorter-term business issues. However, succession planning is a critical issue, in particular, for a small registered investment adviser firm due to the risks that one key investment adviser representative could become unavailable, on either a temporary or permanent basis, to serve clients and operate the registered investment adviser firm. In the interest of both the investment advisory practice and its clients, it is critical to plan for continuity and succession of the registered investment adviser firm.
