What is APBOE?

The Advisory Practice Board of Exchange (APBOE) is a financial advisor marketplace to buy and sell wealth management practices. APBOE is a neutral site for multiple third-party valuation providers, M&A consultants, investment banks, and independent broker dealers to list sellers, search buyers, and ultimately sell practices.

APBOE provides access to bank financing to fund wealth management practices. Via our Pre-Approval portal, applicants are routed to an independent Lender Marketplace to find the best bank partner to fund your transaction. APBOE provides a turnkey solution for independent and registered investment advisors to buy and sell wealth management practices with the requisite funding.

Sellers on APBOE can ascertain creditworthiness and practice readiness of prospective buyers from our proprietary PurchasingPower™ scoring methodology. Buyers on APBOE can increase their likelihood of acquiring practices by receiving a verified PurchasingPower™ score.
