Advisor Business Conversion

Advisors may need or want to change the product mix or asset allocation for some clients during the transition process. For taxable portfolios, this can create a tax burden. To help control the tax impact of transitioning portfolios, UAIM offers its Portfolio Transition Management (PTM) service. PTM allows the advisor and client to control the tax and risk trade-offs through the use of tax mandates – limits on the amount of capital gains the client is willing to realize. A member of our ABC team will work closely with you to analyze each client’s situation and tax sensitivities while developing customized PTM proposals. You and your client simply instructs us not to realize more than a specified amount of short-term or long-term capital gains, and we will customize the transition process for each client’s portfolio, balancing the impact of taxes against the risk associated with continuing to hold certain assets.


Advisor Business Conversion is a key program for:

  • Advisors who want to transition assets onto a customizable, managed-money platform
  • Independent advisors looking to convert new assets held at another custodian due to acquisition or recruiting efforts
  • Advisory firms desiring to tranition existing assets to a more flexible, cost effective managed-money program
  • Newly independent advisors wanting to provide comparable platforms to HNW and UHNW clients
