Succession Plan

A key consideration for any financial practice should be – What happens if the key person/owner should pass away or get seriously injured and is no longer capable of working? Who will look after the practices’ clients? What will happen to the staff who interacts with the client’s daily and takes care of all the administrative functions? What happens if the key person/owner starts to slow down as they move into the twilight years?

To address this I have teamed up with Nigel Tennant of First Advisors. Should anything happen to me, my practice goes to Nigel. I have also taken out sufficient life cover to ensure that all the practice expenses, including staff, can be paid for a minimum of 6 months. It will also leave enough funds in the company account to reimburse Nigel for his time while he communicates with you our clients and also properly structure resources to cope with the new, larger, practice. In due course, with you being informed every step of the way, you will be migrated to First Advisors.

We have worked and known each other for the better part of 15 years. To know more about Nigel and his company Visit his website: https://www.firstadvisors.co.za/ In addition please see a short biography of Nigel Tennant below.

- Nigel Tennant is the Founder and owner of First Advisors and has achieved 35 years of Financial Planning experience having started his career in the early years of 1979.
