Opportunities?

The Aldes Agency presents a real opportunity to financial planners with a client
base of business owners and / or high net worth clients. The Aldes Agency
dovetails very well with the activities of a typical FSP practice
Some of our most successful brokers stem from a background in the financial
services industry.
Many have also come from a successful corporate background, and several are
also past owners of SMME's themselves.

Threats?

The sales cycle is fairly lengthy - a new buyer should cater for several months
of limited cash flow while establishing themselves. Once a 'pipeline' is
established, earning potential is effectively unlimited.
For example, this agency concluded a R29 700 000 deal in August 2020 (in the middle of the Covid pandemic) and the commission payout was made during March 2021.

What is the reason for the sale?

This agency is jointly owned by two individuals, one of whom lives in the upper highway area.
An opportunity for this person to purchase a share in the upper highway agency has become available, hence the reason for him to sell.
The other partner is available to stay on as a Broker in order to provide continuity and expertise for the new owner.
