Due in part to the need for succession plans by owners, 2019 was the seventh consecutive record year for M&A activity in the registered investment adviser industry. 2020 looks to be another incredibly active year in the industry, with Fidelity reporting that RIA M&A activity has roared back to life despite the COVID pandemic. Mintz hosted a webinar with a distinguished panel who discussed the outlook for the future as well as lessons learned from both buyers and sellers in the industry.
