In this episode of the RIA Podcast: The RIA M&A 2022 Mid-Year Outlook, Alaris Acquisitions CEO Allen Darby discusses the current state of M&A activity and valuations and offers perspectives on how the remainder of 2022 will take shape with Mark Bruno.
For the longest time, mergers and acquisitions have been one of the most, if not the most, dominant themes within the RIA channel. During the last quarter, however, the market and economy have changed substantially—throwing potential challenges into the red-hot RIA M&A market.
In this episode of RIA Edge, Mark Bruno, managing director at Informa Wealth Management, speaks with Allen Darby, CEO of Alaris Acquisitions, on the current state of M&A activity and valuations, and offers perspectives on how the remainder of 2022 will take shape.
Specifically, Mark and Allen discuss:
- How deal structures are changing and evolving;
- Are RIA valuations still at record-high levels?
- How many high-quality acquisition targets currently exist on the market and how does the supply side of M&A impact the future of the market; and
- What the future of RIA M&A holds.
