Who Would You Rather Sell Your Firm To?
February 2, 2016
With private equity house Lighyear Capital buying AIG's advisors, BNY Mellon acquiring Atherton Lane Advisers, and a few indie mergers on the boards, 2016 is already shaping up to be a banner year for M&A. If you were to sell your firm, what is your preferred buyer?
|Private equity. They're comparatively patient and culturally neutral.|
|A big bank, where I know my firm will thrive with lots of cross-selling opportunities.|
|Another wealth advisor, so that the firm's culture remains intact with a like-minded buyer.|
