Welcome to TD Ameritrade's Emerging Firm Practice Management Program

NAPFA, in partnership with TD Ameritrade Institutional, introduces the Emerging Firm Practice Management Program as part of NAPFA’s growing portfolio of educational resources.

Every firm wants to grow their business, but growing businesses face a broad range of challenges. Often, it’s solid practice management concepts and skills that can determine a firm’s profitability and successful growth strategy.

If you are:

  • A single custodian firm
  • Total AUM of $90-200m
  • Working with a team of 1-4 and ready to add a junior advisor/manager

Then this is the right program for you.

Practice Management Essentials

Encompassing the results of the FA insight Study of Advisory Firms, the Emerging Firm Practice Management Program includes key learnings on operational processes and technology tools that address top challenges in achieving growth including:

  • Understanding human capital management strategies on recruiting, retaining and nurturing talent
  • Balancing business development, new client acquisition and value-added processes to accelerate growth
  • Exploring supporting technologies that improve operational efficiencies, productivity and CRM capabilities
