When partner offices and advisors join Beacon Pointe, they are able to leverage the back office and resources of one of the largest and most successful RIAs in the country.

In addition, Beacon Pointe’s access to leading custodian retail referral programs provides opportunity for enhanced lead flow.
Resources for You and Your Team
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, but you will be an equity owner/partner and employee of Beacon Pointe Advisors. You will be our equity partner and run your local operating company within your exclusive territory. You will also be part of the Board of Managing Directors that meets regularly to help guide the company, share best practices, etc.
Ownership is determined by the amount of net income that your local operating company generates. Each time a new partner joins, and at least once a year, equity ownership percentage is recalculated to be sure it accurately reflects the amount of net income each local partner office is generating.
Ultimately, this is the best decision. We want to do everything we can to drive valuation so when you are ready to retire, we are buying your shares at the greatest valuation. Common branding is a valuation driver. In addition, we believe being part of a significantly larger enterprise brand is valuable in the marketplace when prospecting for clients and also allows us to centralize marketing efforts, social media management, etc. That being said, we can discuss special circumstances that may allow for co-branding for a period of time.
Yes. You will be part of the Board of Managing Directors which meets at least twice annually and helps direct and steer the company. Your input is always welcome, as the success of Beacon Pointe is the collection of all of us.
You will not be required to sell all of your clients’ investments when you join Beacon Pointe Advisors. We encourage advisors to bring their client portfolios to Beacon Pointe “in kind.” The Beacon Pointe investment management platform of separately managed accounts, mutual funds, alternatives and ETFs is very robust and has proven to serve clients very well, especially through rough markets. We ask that over a 24 to 36 month period after joining Beacon Pointe, you transition your client portfolios to our investment managers. Again, this needs to be done with clients’ best interests in mind.
Beacon Pointe advisors can affiliate with a third-party broker-dealer who will hold your license and pay your trails at a very competitive rate.

We can support the use of all major software platforms, eMoney, Money Guide Pro, NaviPlan, etc. Beacon Pointe Insurance Services is also available to provide life insurance, long-term care and disability insurance to best serve your clients at your discretion.
Beacon Pointe is looking for long-term partners. We are very deliberate and careful about partnering with people we believe are a good fit and share our values and vision. It’s important that we like, trust and respect each other. That being said, we can clearly mark your business/clients that you bring to Beacon Pointe Advisors. There are protections within the Beacon Pointe documents for partners that allow you to leave for “good reason.” We want great partners and it is in everyone’s best interest that Beacon Pointe maintain an environment and culture that entices people to want to stay.
Yes. You will have an exclusive territory. We will determine the territory based on discussions between you and Beacon Pointe Advisors and with consideration of the size of your current business.
