Client lists, databases and other confidential information are incredibly valuable, and financial advisory firms can find themselves in a challenging situation when their staff depart while attempting to take client and contact details and other confidential information with them. After investing significant time, effort, and resources in cultivating relationships to build a sustainable client base, it’s imperative that firms take all reasonable measures available to safeguard the confidentiality of client lists and databases, ensuring they remain out of a competitor’s reach. To protect a firm’s most critical asset, essential for its continued success, senior financial advisors should follow specific steps and procedures to maintain client relationships, uphold confidentiality and prevent misappropriation.

During this seminar, Helene and Joe will cover:

  1. Ownership of client lists, databases and other confidential information.
  2. Legal steps and procedures that should be implemented, including:
    1. validly enforceable employment restraints;
    2. robust confidentiality clauses; and
    3. other commercial arrangements.
  3. Legal options available to firms when an advisor departs.

Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to learn about the reasonable measures you can take to secure your confidential information and safeguard your firm’s interests.
