What is the CEPA designation?

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) is a unique credential that allows professional advisors to deeply engage with more business owners and help them plan in every aspect of their personal finances.  Whether you are looking to sell or transition out of the business when retirement rolls around, a CEPA can help you plan for a successful transition.

Why is it important?

Many business owners struggle to align their personal finances, only paying attention to business finances.  Having an advisor on your team that possesses the CEPA designation will help owners build more valuable companies, align their financial goals and create a solid personalfinancial plan that can help you retire with confidence that your financial bases are covered.

When you work with a CEPA, you’ll get an expert who will examine issues related to your professional industry; your tolerance for risk; your timeline for retirement; and other critical areas of operating a business. We’ll help you decide when’s the best time to sell your business and how to minimize your taxes from the sale.
