Impressionist TEAM WORKBOOK Decisions and Notes for Modules 1 – 5 BSMART Business Simulation Management and Relationship Training
Vision, Mission & Strategy The Foundation of a Business MODULE ONE
Your Vision * From a Managerial, Financial, Operational and Human Resources perspective we will operate as one firm. From a client perspective (front office) we will operate as two independent firms. *$4B firm, 50% on WM $2B AUM & $2B AUM in IM businesses *Broad based ownership, clear understanding of partnership requirements, well developed career paths for all employees. *Geographic expansion on WM side into second tier cities (Denver, Tucson, Albuquerque, Kansas City, Omaha..) *Employer of choice in 2 nd tier markets in which we operate. A vision statement describes what you want your firm to look like in the future, typically three to five years out, or longer, and is both an internal and an external message. If you keep it front and center, it can help you stay focused on your goals. It can also help inspire and motivate your staff, and instill confidence in clients that you know where you want to be in the future. As you craft a vision statement for your firm, ask: What do we aspire to become in three to five years? What does success look like for our firm over this period? What does our end-state look like? A vision statement describes the future state you are looking to create – your desired end-game for the firm in 2020.
Your Mission Empower individuals (clients, employees & advisors) to achieve financial freedom in pursuit of their goals and dreams. We will support local communities through community outreach (charitable activities, community involvement). A mission statement describes why you are in business, and is primarily used internally. It plays an important role in helping you assess your activities and determining if they are in line with your core purpose. It can be used to “sanity check” what you may be considering doing – if activities stray from your core purpose, you may decide not to do them or to reevaluate your mission. As you craft a mission statement for your firm, ask: What is our purpose for being here? Why do we do what we do? What needs do clients have when they come to us? What are the most significant strengths of our business? Why do clients choose our firm over other firms? What are our differentiators? A mission statement describes why the organization exists – its core purpose.
Your Strategy *We house wealth management and investment management capabilities under one roof. *WM in Sante Fe –Dominant competitor with size and scale advantages. *IM-We have 3 year track record. IM – We know what it’s like to manage money for high net worth individuals (taxable accounts) as opposed to Institutional Money Managers who fail to appreciate the tax consequences of their strategies. IM expertise helps us better select investment vehicles in addition to our in house strategies on the WM side. Planning and Investment expertise ensure good outcomes for our clients. Questions that may help: What makes us better than the competition? Why do customers choose us? What makes us unique? What do we have that others do not? What do we do that cannot be replicated? Why are we successful? What created our success to date? Our competitive advantage is…
SWOT Analysis StrengthsWeaknesses * 3 yr track Investment track record Lack of alignment – two separate entities for ownership. Premier Wealth Mgmt in SW for both WM and Investments. No clear distinction between ownership and voting control. Quality employees (experience and education). Limited employment options for those who want to live in Santa Fe allow us to attract quality. Increased valuation has made ownership very expensive for next generation. Size and scale advantages in SW. Only RIA with > $1B AUM. Lack of ideal client profile Location – perceived on IM side as being away from noise of Wall Street. IM growth still reliant on revenue sharing with referral sources
SWOT Analysis OpportunitiesThreats Next Generation talent - training Organization structure – running two separate entities – friction between the two. Increase distribution on investment side to take advantage of 3 year track record. Revisit revenue share. Investment styles can go out of favor Expand WM footprint to become a dominant Regional provider Retaining talented employees who only have limited ownership opportunities Leverage increasing value of IW & I investment to invest back into biz. Offer succession plan to IM clients (RIAs) – tuck in to IW & I RIA Competition for resources between WM and IM side Target talented employees looking to live in SW. (ex pats living in NYC) Growing WM side can be seen as competition to RIAS using us on IM side New products on IM side (40 act funds, new strategies) Regulatory actions regarding revenue share (paying for referrals)

Compensation Philosophy At IW & I our goal is to compensate our people in the second quartile. We establish salary ranges based on industry survey data and adjust for geographic location (COLA). Within salary ranges, employees can advance based on their experience, responsibilities, relevant degrees/designations and increasing contribution within the firm. In addition to salary, we also provide incentive compensation. Depending on the role, incentive compensation can add between 5% to 100% of the salary to an employee’s compensation. The incentive contribution is driven by both individual performance and firm performance. The total pool for incentive compensation will be determined by firm performance, individual shares of that pool will be determined by individual performance. Incentive compensation will be paid annually. Equity ownership will be offered (chance to buy in) to select individuals based on their contributions and long term value to IW & I. Equity will be valued annually by an independent source. We will offer a second quartile level of health care and retirement benefits. What is your compensation philosophy?
