In this episode, I’m discussing risk mitigation. More specifically, I’m going to look at the insurance coverages you need to have as an RIA owner. Now, I know insurance may not be the most fun topic, but it is important and it could significantly impact the value of your business. So, don’t tune out!
I’ll be covering increases to your required coverages and the core coverages you should have. However, I’ll also discuss how your firm’s legal entity could work to mitigate potential risks to you, as the owner. Finally, I’ll explain how each of these components can affect your eight-figure exit. The information I’m sharing today can’t be missed, regardless of the industry your company operates in!
