Asked to rate each service individually, here’s how advisers scored our licensee services:

Partners we work with


"LaVista embraced the culture within our business."

Partnering with LaVista Licensee Solutions has been such a positive experience. The team really made the effort to understand our business and what we are striving to achieve. Our strategy includes a strong focus on pro bono work. LaVista has embraced the fact we are a community-centred, values-driven practice and provided not only the business support, but the emotional support too. In doing so, they have shown tremendous belief in us. When you make the decision to become self-licensed, there is so much to think about. Our industry operates under such tight constraints and it can be overwhelming. LaVista helped to take a lot of the stress out of our hands. They are very transparent in how they operate – this rings true from the top down. We also have access to people when we need it, whether that’s tapping into their expertise or brainstorming ideas. As a result there is a strong sense of trust in the relationship. There’s also a sense of easiness – instead of being confined to rigid parameters, LaVista has a flexible attitude that has given us the opportunity to move forward. They focus on our strengths and aspirations, not our limitations. This has made a world of difference. LaVista embraced the culture within our business, and ultimately, we have embraced LaVista. They have given us the confidence that we need to thrive.

"LaVista gives me more time in the practice, rather than on it."

Any adviser knows that setting up your own AFSL is a really big step. Choosing the right licensee provider is one of the biggest decisions you will make. Liz and I looked at other licensee service providers with more history and experience but ultimately, we chose LaVista Licensee Solutions. It largely came down to the attitude of Mike and his team. Their “we will just do it” attitude was refreshing. Nothing was too hard. And this flows right through their business, from end-to-end. The people are authentic, supportive - you feel they really have your back. And there’s always someone at the end of the phone when you need it, the responsiveness is great. With a busy practice, that’s important to me. I think what LaVista has really given us is the benefit of time. Partnering with LaVista gives me more time in the practice, rather than on it. That’s powerful. There’s a saying that money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy time. Having more time means we can focus on building the practice we’ve always wanted. This includes having the time to do pro bono work in the community which is really important to us. I would recommend LaVista to anyone looking to set up their own AFSL. And if you’ve got an AFSL but want more time, you should also speak to LaVista.
