About the Episode
Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the wealth management profession has reached record levels this year, highlighted by mega-deals such as the acquisition of United Capital by Goldman Sachs. Indeed, the total AUM of deals more than doubled since 2018, according to some reports. My guest today is David DeVoe, who will help us understand what is behind that trend, whether it will continue and what advisors should consider if they want to position themselves for a sale.
