Kansas City area-based registered investment adviser (RIA) Fortis Capital Advisors has acquired New Jersey-based Next Horizon Advisors.
The $200m transaction comes as Fortis Capital seeks to continue to expand across the US and aggressively grow its adviser as well as client base.
Founded in 2014 by Shrikant Nadkarni, the acquired entity offers comprehensive wealth management and planning solutions for business owners, professionals and senior-level executives.
Fortis Capital CEO Rob Hagg said: “Next Horizon’s impressive history and comprehensive approach to their client’s needs, directly aligns with the core values of Fortis Capital.
“When making an acquisition of this type, it is so important to keep all core values aligned. It was very clear during the process that our firms were a perfect fit and we are very lucky to have the talent and consultation of Shree throughout this process and for years to come.”
Fortis Capital specialises in investment advisory services, including discretionary and non-discretionary investment management and financial planning and consulting services. It caters to individuals, corporations, retirement plans, pensions, and investment companies.
