DALLAS, Oct. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HBC Investments has agreed to sell its ownership interest in Retirement Advisors of America (RAA) to a strategic acquirer, Allworth Financial, based in Sacramento, CA. HBC Investments led a recapitalization of RAA and provided growth capital to the firm in 2015 to support the management team's growth initiatives. Since HBC's investment, RAA successfully pursued an add-on acquisition strategy of key Registered Investment Advisors ("RIA's"), growing from $1.8 billion of client assets under management to $2.8 billion.
"We are very proud to be a part of RAA's success and facilitate the sale of RAA to Allworth Financial, providing RAA's management team the opportunity to take RAA to the next level," said Joe Colonnetta, HBC's Managing Partner. "While we were not looking to sell our interest, it was not a surprise that RAA was an attractive acquisition candidate given the consolidation sweeping the RIA industry."
The sale of HBC's ownership interest remains subject to standard regulatory approvals.
"We are grateful to the HBC team for leading the recapitalization of RAA in 2015 and providing the capital and strategic guidance for RAA's growth, both organically and through acquisitions," said John Bentley, Chief Executive Officer of RAA.
