Sell your business

We understand that selling your business will probably be one of the hardest decisions you will ever have to make and choosing the best buyer for you and your clients is a decision you only get to make once.

A major concern is likely to be “will my clients be looked after and continue to receive quality service?”

If you conclude that selling your business is the right decision for you, we will ensure that you and your clients are supported throughout the process and to assure you that moving forward, your clients will be in a safe pair of hands.

Our clients are at the heart of everything we do. In 2018, as a result of an intense, independent client survey we were proud and delighted to receive the Investors in Customers’ Gold Award for the quality of service we offer to our clients. (One of a select few financial services companies in the UK to receive this award).

Whether you decide to sell or grow your business – We aim to ensure your clients will still hold you in high regard whilst valuing the new relationship you have secured for them.

    Looking after clients

    we take care of our clients and want to make the transition a smooth journey. Novation’s or client letters will need to be signed depending on the investment providers.
