How We Provide Brokerage Business Planning

  • After collecting required information from a client, we will compare it to peer companies in our database. We have data on more than 450 brokerage firms in the United States and Canada that is refreshed monthly.
  • We will prepare a report for our client and discuss the results personally with them.
  • The report identifies each area of revenue, cost and productivity as compared to peer companies. This analysis can be done by size of firm, business model or region.
  • We work with our client to highlight areas where the client is over or under the normal levels of revenues and expenses.
  • We work with our client to develop a plan for addressing these areas and how they can improve the value and the performance of their company.

How Do We Provide an Assessment?

  • First, we understand what the client’s objectives are in terms of having an assessment done of their operations and/or their staff.
  • We establish a process and a schedule which includes a financial review and interviews with the key staff of the company. Often, we also include interviews with sales agents in order to get a clearer picture of the firm.
  • We prepare a written report to the client with our findings and recommendations as well as set time for a discussion with the client and the appropriate executives of the client.
