Radar Results - helping you find that planning business
We help planners expand their practices through acquisition
Radar Results (Radar) are consultants providing advice to financial planners and accountants in the area of expansion, whether organically or by acquisition. Our clients vary from small boutique businesses through to large institutions.
Radar provides marketing services to financial planners and accountants who wish to find practices to acquire which have the same culture. Radar uses a database listing of 13,000 financial planners and over 4,000 accountants to achieve their results.
Radar’s consulting service is highly confidential, allowing for the acquisition to be completed without the involvement of any ‘outside’ competition. Radar does not advertise, broadcast by email, use a website listing or otherwise circulate the fact that a practice wishes to sell. Radar’s private consulting service means your staff, clients and competitors are not alerted to the fact that you are selling; thus staff and clients are less likely to leave your business pre-sale. In respect to the seller, Radar does not require any contract to be signed, allowing you to sell the business to any buyer you yourself may find.
The ‘DIY Sellers Kit’
If you are an accountant or financial planner wishing to sell, whether it be a client register or a full practice complete with staff and offices, the DIY Seller’s Kit could be the way to go. This simple kit is full of directions and help and will provide you with a list of professionals who have been researched by Radar and found to be experts in their field.
The kit also includes a Seller’s Checklist, with information developed specifically for financial planners who are looking to sell and want to ensure they have covered all bases. Radar also provides free consulting services to the seller, including help in developing a Business Profile or Information Memorandum. We can suggest who would be the right cultural fit to acquire your business, thus dramatically shortening the sale process. Just click on DIY Sellers Kit to lodge your order.
Valuation and appraisal service
Radar provides valuations to accountants and financial planners either in the form of a free appraisal, delivered within 1–2 working days, or a formal valuation by a registered valuer. The formal valuation may take 1–2 weeks and will provide you with both hard and soft copies of the expert’s valuation of your practice, based on an EBIT model compared with industry multiples of recurring revenue and total revenue. Just go to Formal Valuation Questionnaire or Appraisal Questionnaire.
If you wish to engage Radar as a consultant to help you expand your business, simply complete an online Buyers Questionnaire; it takes only 5 minutes and registers you as a buyer with Radar. We will then forward to you an Acquisition Proposal.
