Elevation Financial Group (EFG), is a privately owned company which was formed in 2011, as a specialist National consolidator of Independent Financial Adviser (IFA’s) practices throughout the UK. Established by IFAs, EFG delivers bespoke solutions for IFA firms looking to sell their businesses either now or in the near future.

EFG is ‘The IFA Integration Company’. Acquisition in our mind should mean integration. We will look to apply best practice methods that will only enhance the current client experience as well as harnessing processes that have made your firm the success that it is.

Because EFG was established by IFAs, we properly understand how an IFA practice works. Appreciating the culture and operating methods of your business is key to a successful transitional stage.

EFG wholly owns Elevation Investment Management Ltd (EIM), which is a directly authorised IFA firm, (www.elevation-im.co.uk). Companies that are acquired will normally be integrated directly into EIM or become an Appointed Representative firm (AR) of the company, if the purchase is on a deferred basis. (See ‘Valuation’ tab). EIM has offices currently in Birmingham, London and has an AR firm Elevation Investment Management (East Midlands) in Nottinghamshire.

“I have no hesitation in recommending Elevation Investment Management and Tony Smith should anyone be looking to either merge or sell their Financial Services business. For me the essential components were to identify a business partner that focussed on the needs of the client over their own, and had the admin resources and geographical spread of advisers capable  of delivering effective on-going services.

So far Tony and his team have delivered with the minimal of disruption to my former clients.”

“Bricar Investment Management Ltd began to work with Elevation in mid 2012 ahead of RDR and then became fully integrated a year later. This was during a period of huge change and many challenges. However we have overcome these and faced the future positively.

I have found the Elevation team very personable and extremely helpful both with me and, most importantly, my clients. After a period of bedding in we have been able to streamline the administration and the IFA process, leading to us being able to focus on client servicing and new business creation from my old London base.(This ensured continuity of contact for clients).

Matt Black has been assigned to my account and his professionalism and knowledge compliments my client bank very well. Nearly four years on the account is now going from strength to strength.”

“We started talking to Elevation in mid summer 2015, and managed to complete our deal in November. It was evident that they were well experienced in dealing with the whole process, which was very smooth. The initial offer was consistent with the deal that completed- which breeds a lot of confidence in the relationship moving forward. But it was not just about price, very important were my clients welfare, and them feeling comfortable with the changes. So far the transition has been excellent.

Elevation have provided my account with complete focus, through Adam being assigned specifically to work with me and fully manage the transition and provide on going service. At this stage I feel very comfortable.”
