The Idea

Financial advisor transitions
are difficult and risky.

Broker-dealers and RIAs need the best advisors to succeed, but convincing them to join your team requires overcoming a major hurdle: the transition process.

Transitioning a book of business to a new broker-dealer or RIA can take 3-6 months, involve thousands of forms, and, due to missing forms and data, usually results in NIGOs and other compliance issues. During this process, advisors are faced with frustrating business disruptions and lost revenue.

How does it work?


Docupace works with the Broker-Dealer or RIA to custom-build a Transition Assistant site according to the firm’s specific instructions and complete with all necessary forms.


Docupace contracts directly with the advisor and walks them through the re-papering process. Hands-on concierge service is available from the Advisor Transitions team throughout the process.


The advisor completes a final review, signs the completed forms, and all necessary data is transferred to the broker-dealer or RIA for processing.


The advisor is ready to continue serving their clients and work with their new firm, having experienced minimal business interruption.
