M&A Involving Advisors Continues at Steady Pace
Mergers and acquisitions continue to rise. Total M&A deals through the first half of 2014 total $32.6 billion in assets. That total is double the assets during the comparable period in 2013. The average deal size also has increased to $1.13 billion, up the $3 million from last year.
Owners continue to prosper within their own organization. As a result, many focus on succession planning to involve juniors within their firm. Owners much rather would preserve their independence internally and monetize the value of their firm. Therefore, there has not been an increase in external industry consolidation.
