NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) jolted the U.S. wealth management industry on Thursday through the transformational acquisition of City National Bank for $5.4 billion. Thursday's deal comes on the heels of Boston Private's recent purchase of Banyan Partners, and Hudson Valley Bank's recent divestiture of A.R. Schmeidler & Co. Make no mistake, banks are back in wealth management M&A.
What's driving this increased activity and what can banks and RIAs learn from these transactions? Silver Lane Insights tackles this all-important question, providing a framework of strategic alternatives for banks with subscale RIA subsidiaries. In a nutshell, it's Up or Out.
Silver Lane Insights is also pleased include a special contribution from Seward & Kissel, one of the leading law firms advising investment advisors and other financial institutions.
