  • Advisor Group To Fold Three Ladenburg Firms Into Securities America

    May 12, 2020 | Media Mentions, News

    Six months after acquiring Ladenburg Thalmann and its five broker/dealers in a $1.3 billion deal, Advisor Group will integrate three of those b/ds under the Securities America banner.

    The move will leave Securities America and Triad Advisors as the only remaining stand-alone firms from the Ladenburg acquisition. The transition should be completed by the end of the year, according to Advisor Group CEO Jamie Price.

    Price said that much of the business functions of the three b/ds slated to merge—Investacorp, Securities Service Network (SSN) and KMS Financial Services—were already being performed by Securities America’s operations group...

    Other than a small portion of KMS accounts, no repapering would be needed, according to Price, who said just under 1,000 advisors would be affected by the transition. Larry Roth, a managing partner with RLP Financial Partners, said that the realignment would likely help expedite financial professional’s access to Advisor Group’s technology stack.

    “I think this will be quite good for advisors and get them what they need than if they had built it out over time,” he said.
