Acquisitions and mergers have been minor this week, but consultant recruitment has continued to be strong.
Carson Group announced that Bain Capital has acquired a minority stake in RIA valued at $ 1 billion. Bain bought holdings from Carson’s previous private equity owner Long Ridge Equity Partners. Ron Carson, CEO and founder of the Carson Group, retains a majority stake in the Nebraska-based RIA.
The Wealth Enhancement Group and Tiedmann Constantia also announced acquisitions this week, which you can see below.
The advisor’s steps remain robust. LPL Financial caught a former team of Ameriprise Financial advisors in Hawaii. The new team, known as Pacstar Financial Group, had total client assets under management of $ 420 million and includes advisors Alan Kodama, Rose Antonio, John Araki and Thomas Lodico.
Steward Partners, a subsidiary of Raymond James Financial, recruited its newest hires to help raise over $ 1 billion in assets under management. Within six weeks, the law firm brought seven new consultants along the east coast.
A Tampa, Florida team with $ 2 billion under management moved from Bernstein Private Wealth Management to UBS Private Wealth Management. The new team brings six specialists to UBS. At around the same time, UBS gained a consultant, but also lost one. Klaudia Conradt left UBS to become independent with the Commonwealth Financial Network.
In Miami, Insigneo, a broker / dealer and RIA, added a women-only team that manages $ 800 million in client assets. The team, known as Green Grove Wealth Management, provides services to approximately 400 high net worth households in numerous countries in Europe and America. She left Wells Fargo not long after the bank announced in January that it was closing its international wealth management unit. Wells said in its earnings report that it lost 10% of its consultant power since the second quarter of last year and 3% between the first and second quarters.
