In partnership with Cerulli Associates 

Join us on Thursday, June 20 for a discussion of wealth management M&A and opportunities in an evolving distribution environment.

Merger and acquisition (M&A) in wealth management continues unabated. Given the sheer number of subscale registered investment advisor (RIA) firms and an ongoing succession crisis within the broader industry, the landscape is ripe for transactions. RIA consolidator firms, often backed by private equity, are a key driver behind the M&A movement.

While the drivers of RIA consolidation have been well detailed, how should asset managers consider changing their product development and distribution strategy? Asset managers need to consider the product, service, and technology needs of these new and formidable players in the wealth management value chain.

Join this MMI Webinar for to hear experts from Cerulli Associates, Janus Henderson Investors, and Sanctuary Wealth discuss:

  • Why RIA firms will look to sell to a consolidator
  • The rise of the RIA consolidator model and how it is evolving to create centralization and scale
  • Product and engagement models retail asset managers should consider as they strive to gain platform access
  • How asset managers are successfully covering RIA consolidators
