M&A and Wealth Management
For the fifth consecutive year, retirement advisory firm M&As reached new record highs in 2021, with this trend having no end in sight. Already in 2022, multiple big-ticket mergers and acquisitions have been announced, and many more are expected. Increasingly, the industry is seeing deals bringing together retirement plan-focused advisory shops with traditional wealth managers, creating firms with more expansive skillsets that can meet the evolving demands of clients.
