How to Grow Your Tax Client Base with Investments & Insurance

If you’re offering tax planning or virtual Chief Financial Officer services, the next logical offering for your clients is tax-advantaged wealth management. Many of your current recommendations to your tax and accounting clients for insurance, investments, savings, and retirement already need to be fulfilled by a licensed financial advisor. You can partner with us to pass the SIE, Series 7, Series 66 and life insurance exams and become one yourself. Once you pass, we’ll help you start offering investment and insurance to your clients. Not only will this increase your lifetime value per client, it will also increase the value of your business. That’s because tax and accounting services typically sell for only 1-1.25x revenue, while financial advisory fees typically sell for 2-2.5x revenue.

The Path to Wealth
Management-Redefined for Tax &
Accounting Professionals

Most broker-dealers don’t support tax and accounting professionals who want to become a financial advisor and offer wealth management to their clients. We’re different. We believe the accountant is the most trusted advisor in their clients’ lives, and should be supported in helping clients with their total financial picture. We’ve mapped out a step-by-step process for offering tax-advantaged wealth management.

Key Steps in Your Journey to
Becoming a Financial Advisor

Learn the Available Investment and Insurance Products, and Their Value

When you first get into this line of business, you’ve got a lot to learn to be able to deliver optimal value to clients. We’ll help you navigate the investment and insurance products you’ll recommend to clients:

  1. Assets Under Management (AUM)
  2. Insurance (term life, Index Universal Life, Variable Universal Life, whole life, annuities)
  3. Estate Planning
  4. Advance Planning

Education-Based Sales Materials
That Convert High-Net-Worth Clients

Most financial advisors don’t understand what they’re selling, and neither do their clients. Our goal is to educate prospects and let them make the buying decision themselves. We have 150+ slide presentations for tax-advantaged wealth management and insurance planning. You’ll be trained to use the materials in a compliant way to upsell existing clients, convert new ones and gain clients through referral partnerships we forge for you with other accountants.

Choreographed Referrals With
Accountants as Solicitors

Many of our 8,923 accountant-customers want to offer wealth management to their clients, but don’t want to get licensed. Partnering with Cambridge Investment Research, we have created a method for them to share in advisory fees without being licensed in some states.*

Outside Business Activity 
(OBA) Support

Outside Business Activity
(OBA) Support

Most broker-dealers do not support tax and accounting as outside business activities, but we do. That’s because we believe that not only should these services be supported, they should also be encouraged. As your clients’ accountant, you have a nearly complete picture of their financial life. Bringing in wealth management will only strengthen your understanding and planning of their lives.

Tax-Advantaged
Wealth Managed

We’ll work with you to determine the risk tolerance, timeline and investment return objectives of your tax and accounting clients. We’ll also perform risk management and diversification planning, and look over their entire personal and business structure to optimize for tax-advantaged growth. Finally, we’ll advise on protections against key risks on a per-client basis. Below, you’ll see the products that could make up our tax-advantaged wealth management plan. Some of these products we’ll deliver directly, while some we’ll coordinate with third-parties such as our broker-dealer and attorneys.
