“Thanks to a seamless transition process and a great brand image, I was able to move 99% of my clients to Ameriprise.”

Making the move easier
We understand what it takes to shift your book of business from one firm to another, and we'll help you transfer and establish client accounts at Ameriprise Financial. In addition, your clients can stay on track toward their goals as you move them from your existing product line to our set of in-house and nonproprietary products. The following services can help ensure a smooth transition:
Mutual fund book of business review
Our mutual fund transfers group will review the funds in your book and break down how each fund aligns with product offerings available at Ameriprise.
Separately Managed Accounts Program
Ameriprise offers Separate Account Programs with over 600 separate managed account strategies. Your transition team will help identify which of your separate account managers and strategies are already available for transfers and new sales. In the event that the separate account manager is not available, we will review and determine eligibility for inclusion in one of our programs or work to find a suitable alternate SMA.
Accommodation Annuity Program
You can continue to service certain annuities sold prior to joining Ameriprise and be paid trail commissions on them.
Your transition team includes a brokerage field relations manager to help you navigate the brokerage transfer process, provide core systems training, and answer general questions about our brokerage and managed account programs.
Fully equipped office space
If you join the Ameriprise Advisor Group, you start your first day with a professional, fully equipped work space in one of our existing offices that can help your clients feel comfortable in your new location.
To help minimize costs associated with moving their accounts, we'll reimburse your clients for both ACAT and non-ACAT transfers up to $199 per account during your first 120 days at Ameriprise.
