Everyone's transition is different. For some Reps the majority of their transition is prepared prior to their licenses being transferred. For others, the licenses are transferred and then the transition process begins. However your transition is planned, the Transition Coordinator will work with you to map out a plan to effectively and efficiently complete your transition.
Step-By-Step Transition Guide
Our comprehensive 5-Step process has been translated into a four page guide that covers everything in writing and helps you know what to expect throughout the process. The guide also clearly states time frames to establish expectations and timelines. Key steps covered in the process include:
- FINRA Registration Transfers: Our licensing professionals will work with you to transfer your existing license and if the need exists, setup testing windows for new licenses.
- Setting Up Your Office: Signage, business materials and advertising pieces such as letters are reviewed by Compliance in this part of the process.
- Client Account Transfers: Operations works with you to evaluate the transfer strategies available for your specific book of business.
- Commission Processing and Payment Setup: Our Accounting department works with you to setup your ACH process and also trains you on how to use our online commission system to monitor commissions and the bimonthly commission cycle.
- Technology: Berthel Fisher has a great selection of technology services to help you run your practice more efficiently. Our Rep-friendly tech team will walk through all the solutions and help you choose the tools that will work best for you.
