Designed to give you the edge
The RIA Edge Valuation and M&A Workshops are designed to help the leaders of RIAs understand the true drivers of a firm’s value – while also providing actionable steps for continued growth and navigating the M&A market.
What will you learn?
A framework for navigating the current M&A market, analyzing internal transitions vs. external transactions, and an inside look at evolving deal structures and financing options.
The quantitative and qualitative drivers of RIA valuations, including the financial metrics and performance that are most important for buyers and sellers to understand.
How to use a valuation as the cornerstone for developing equity sharing, compensation and organizational structures that will drive your future growth.
Best Practices for Buyers & Sellers
A framework for “M&A readiness” will educate first-time buyers and sellers about the rapidly evolving M&A landscape, financing options and the range of deal types that are fueling record-levels of industry activity.
Manager, Recruiting & Acquisitions
The workshop was a great way for RIAs to learn directly from industry experts on topics like valuation, M&A trends, organic growth initiatives, and different acquisition models. The half-day agenda was also a great way to get people together in-person for meaningful discussions, and not lose an entire day of emails/work.
