Statistics show that a large percentage of advisor firms will sell or merge in the next 5-10 years. Many firms in our space are owned by private equity firms driven to sell at a profit. The excess of private equity capital currently in our industry leaves opportunity for consolidation and a large incentive for return-focused investment managers to sell or merge. Moneta is different because we are partner–owned. We fiercely protect our independence. This allows us to directly align with our clients’ long-term interests while delivering a level of service and loyalty only a completely independent company without external shareholders can offer.
Continuity and sustainability should top your list of priorities as a client evaluating your financial advisor. Unfortunately, most advisors sell their practices to a consolidator, leaving their clients to fend for themselves. The Kukla McGinnis Brown team won’t do that to you. We proved our loyalty to clients by successfully executing advisor succession plans in the past. We currently have a 20-year strategy in place to ensure we never stop taking care of our clients and future generations.
