We’re grateful for the kind words advisors and clients have shared about our relationship, process, and results. While the words they shared are real, we’ve kept their identity private to honor our promise of confident

quality.

“Just wanted to thank you for all your help in our transition from Merrill to independence. In the first two months we moved well over 90% of our accounts and now are generating more in revenue than we ever did at Merrill. The entire team at our new platform has been great and it has been a wonderful breath of independent fresh air. This was a difficult decision after a long career at Merrill but was a perfect move in the end. Thank you.”

“As powerful advocates on our behalf, UpTick helped us identify, negotiate with and move our practice to an organization that offered us virtually everything we were searching for.”

“After 22 years as an RIA principal, I wanted to join forces with another RIA firm. So I contacted UpTick. In just a few conversations it was clear that they understood the market like no one else I had spoken to. And their process was flawless: After taking the time to fully understand me, my firm, and clients, they were able to make an introduction to another firm that was a perfect fit.”

“One of the hardest things to do in any business is to establish trust and confidence over the telephone. UpTick did that, and then some! By periodically providing updates on the industry, they kept me up-to-date so I knew I always had options. But, more importantly, I knew whom to call when I was ready to explore. They helped guide me through the process of identifying the right options for me and my business.”

​

“UpTick helped me break away from UBS and land on a platform for transitioning advisors. I ultimately pivoted to my own RIA. In 8-years as a single advisor firm, we have built that into a $750M AUM firm with $3.5mil in annual revenue and $2.5 mil in profits. Not bad, considering I made $660k my last year at UBS.”

“Their consultative search process and sensitive approach in managing advisor relationships are not only seen as special but as a defining piece of the UpTick ’ brand experience.”

​

“I worked for a wirehouse for the better part of 20-years when I began wondering what the next phase of my career would look like. I knew I wanted more control over my business as well as the freedom and autonomy to truly put my clients’ interests first. UpTick showed me that there was more than one way to achieve the independence I was looking for and introduced me to a number of unique opportunities I would never have otherwise been aware of. They worked with me every step of the way to help me join an independent wealth management firm and to make my dreams a reality.”

​

“UpTick was about my needs, my goals, my aspirations, my future—and not about ‘selling’ me into something that could prove to be a bad fit or career move. I was grateful I could trust them and that they always had my best interests at heart.”

​

“You are the only recruiter we’ve ever spoken to who was interested in finding what we were looking for. That required you to listen to us when we told you we were looking for a new business model. You weren’t just looking to sell us on an opportunity. That’s a unique approach, and it’s also the only one that would ever have worked with us.”

~ Wirehouse team

​

​

“Every firm has capabilities and people with good experience and industry knowledge. Not many take time to slow down and listen, develop a personal connection, and make recommendations based on altruism and selflessness.”

~ Wirehouse advisor

​

​

“UpTick took the time during the due diligence process to fully understand my likes and dislikes, as well as my ultimate goals. They impartially provided the pros and cons of what I was interested in and seamlessly guided my move to independence.”
