California-based investment advisory firm Allworth Financial has expanded its presence in the home market by purchasing Shone Wealth Management.

The deal, whose financial terms were not revealed, adds over $340m in assets to Allworth Financial’s portfolio.

Shone Wealth Management CEO Mark Shone said: “I’ve known Allworth CEOs Scott Hanson and Pat McClain for a long time. They laid out a clear and forward-thinking vision for my future, the future of my team, and for our clients.

“Our clients and staff will all benefit from this partnership, and that made it an easy decision for us.”

Walnut Creek, California-based Shone Wealth Management was set up in 2005.

The business caters to nearly 300 client households, offering fiduciary retirement planning and client-focused investment management advice.

Allworth Financial co-CEO and co-founder Scott Hanson welcomed the deal, calling it “a terrific fit” culturally as well as geographically.
