On April 22, CAPTRUST Senior Director of Strategic Wealth Rush Benton spoke on a panel regarding advisor acquisitions in Atlanta at the Schwab Insight to Action workshop. This workshop was designed to help advisors plan for eventual business ownership succession. The panel focused on topics such as acquisition process, key points of differentiation, firm valuation, portfolio firm growth, and post-acquisition management. Rush offered his insight on topics including ownership and control structure, operations, and compensation of selling advisors. This event follows his participation in another discussion regarding mergers and acquisitions presented by Fidelity on April 21 in Boston.
As leader of CAPTRUST’s private wealth business, Rush is responsible for growing the firm’s private wealth assets both organically and through acquisition of independent, fee-based registered investment advisors.
