CAPTRUST’s managing director of the advisor group, Rick Shoff, contributed to a recent article from NAPA Net the Magazine.
Titled “The Big Get Bigger, The Retirement Plan Advisory Business Enters a Consolidation Phase” and written by Judy Ward, the article discusses consolidation in the advisor market. Additionally, the piece examines the drivers of RIA merger and acquisition transactions and related impacts on the hyper-fragmented retirement plan advisory industry.
When asked about the retirement plan advisory business seemingly entering a consolidation phase, Shoff offered these thoughts, “I think that we are at the beginning of it in the retirement space. If it’s a baseball game, a lot of advisory firms feel like they are in the sixth or seventh inning in their evolution.”
