It is recommended that you review this document in conjunction with the Business Succession Planning Pathway and the Peak Accumulation lifestage. Each lifestage has a complimentary checklist which outlines the requirements and process to comprehensively service that market. The Practice Enhancement section also provides valuable tools to support your strategic development.

This pathway is important because planning your own succession helps you better understand the process and assist client with their succession planning needs. Our philosophy is that the sooner you start planning your own succession, the easier the transition will be and most importantly you will get improved outcomes.

3 AS strategy is aligned to practice succession as practices are encouraged to build long term relationships with ageing clients and their families. This develops a sustainable practice culture which is reflected in the capital value of a practice when it is sold. The recruitment of a younger successor adviser is encouraged, to work with the inheriting generation, and provides the principal with a trained purchaser for the practice. Bottom line - practice succession is good for the principal, the team and the clients.
