WHEN       April 18, 2012
 
WHAT

Schwab Advisor Services reports industry wide-data on registered investment advisor (RIA) mergers and acquisition activity for the first quarter of 2012. The results are available here and include details of total transactions and average deal assets under management (AUM) for the quarter.

 

Schwab’s M&A data focuses on investment advisory firms that predominantly serve high net worth retail investors, firms with at least $50 million in AUM and breakaway brokers from wirehouses who received consideration for joining an RIA.

 

Schwab began tracking M&A transactions in 2004. In addition to providing M&A data, Schwab has a number of services to support advisors through the many types of transitions they may encounter.

 

Schwab Advisor Transition Services is designed to support advisors through each phase of the transition process, including goal setting, evaluating options (internal succession, external sale, and merger or acquisition) and executing a transaction plan.

 

Schwab’s Transition Services includes Schwab’s Mergers & Acquisition Listing Service, an online database offered to advisors that custody with Schwab Advisor Services. The service connects advisor firm buyers and sellers and enables advisors to maintain anonymity while soliciting interest and collecting information from other advisor firms on acquisition, mergers, or sales. Buyers also can search for investment professionals with books of business who would like to join an RIA firm.

 

Additional information and new transitions content are available at www.SchwabTransition.com 1

Jon Beatty, senior vice president, Client Development for Schwab Advisor Services, is available to discuss the M&A data and industry trends.
