Kestra Financial has Acquired 600 Reps and Advisory Firm

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Independent broker-dealer Kestra Financial, Inc has acquired 600 reps and an advisory firm owned by insurance company H. Beck, Inc. Although the terms of the deal were not disclosed, Kestra’s CEO stated that H. Beck was a good fit for the firm and that its separate management team would remain in place.

This acquisition is just one example of a current trend upward in the area of mergers and acquisitions involving independent broker-dealer firms. Moreover, many experts in the field believe that the mergers and acquisition market for broker-dealers will likely increase for the remainder of the year.
