“My colleagues and I believe it is essential to have an advisor with intimate knowledge of the investment industry as well as the experience of having advised on transactions. To find this expert we asked the most prominent industry leaders which firm we could trust to guide our organization in the right direction. The same firm name kept coming up: ECHELON Partners. In working with their team on various projects over the past eight years, we have greatly benefited from their visionary advice and deal expertise. ECHELON’s people-centric ways and the value they have created in our organization is the reason we stay in close contact with them regarding all of our strategic decisions.”

“I wanted to write a note thanking ECHELON Partners for its invaluable service to us over the past several months. One of my initial goals prior to pursuing my deal opportunity was to work with the best consultants and advisors in the wealth management industry so that the very best effort would be made toward a successful deal conclusion. By working with ECHELON Partners I was able to accomplish that goal. There is no doubt in my mind that you and your team, through your unique and in-depth knowledge of the industry, put me and my firm in the very best position possible to win the deal. Thank you again for your professionalism throughout this process. I look forward to staying in touch.”

“As a small-firm partner, I cannot imagine a future without ECHELON at my side. I find them an invaluable resource that provides a tremendous benefit to the firm. The time and patience of the team to explain and provide a perspective on important aspects of practice administration such as valuation, industry trends, and opportunities for growth are much appreciated by all partners. ECHELON’s insight is invaluable and delivered in a most professional manner sensitive to the needs of our business. RIAs are missing the boat if they are not working on their strategic initiatives with ECHELON.”

By helping us consider the financial and nonfinancial issues, we were able to discuss issues up front that could have been land mines later on.

“ECHELON was instrumental in helping our firm navigate the operational, cultural, and financial aspects of successfully merging two independent firms into one. Their holistic approach, experience, process, and willingness to express an opinion were what separated ECHELON as our advisor of choice.”
