What are you solving for?

CAPTRUST provides a compelling alternative for independent RIAs considering a sale of their business. Listen as CAPTRUST CEO Fielding Miller discusses why advisors have joined the firm. And how this decision best serves you, your clients, and your employees.

Over the past decade…

Dozens of accomplished, independent RIAs have joined CAPTRUST, tapping into our proprietary
formula for sustainable growth that includes:

  • Accountability to and alignment with one another and our clients, rather than to outside investors;
  • A collaborative culture of peers working together in one unified practice;
  • A proven, scalable client service and business model; and
  • A capital reinvestment strategy focused on compounding long-term growth rather than short-term payoff.

Your peers share how joining CAPTRUST helped them solve for the key issues RIAs are currently facing:

How can we help?

We get it. This is a big decision, and you’re likely having conversations with multiple buyers. But which business model works best for you and your clients?

The CAPTRUST growth model is anchored by a centralized team of professionals providing a suite of services to financial advisors, who in turn operate their own team for client service and business development. Each advisor has the discretion and flexibility to delegate non-client facing activity to the home office to maximize their effectiveness.

Let’s get to know one another and find out if CAPTRUST is the right fit for you, your clients, and your team.

The best advice I can give to somebody considering a move like this is…

How are we different?

We are a strategic buyer, not a financial buyer or roll-up. We acquire 100% of your business, which is then integrated into our company. We are all employed by, and shareholders of, one entity – CAPTRUST. With over 600 employees, we have dedicated senior management in every functional area of the business and offer a scale advantage that is seldom found in an independent RIA.

Joining forces with CAPTRUST offers an immediate increase in capabilities, resources, and capacity.


Experienced Buyer

We are very careful about only acquiring RIAs that are a strong cultural fit with our organization.

We recognize that clients are the first priority and our dedicated integration team will ensure a smooth transition.

Since 2006, we have successfully completed 38 transactions.

Diversified Offering

We offer a broad range of services to institutional and individual clients.

Our institutional footprint provides a distinct advantage to advisors and their clients.

Depth of Resources

Every year, we reinvest half of our profits back into the business.

As our industry evolves and client needs change, we are able to stay at the forefront through our investments in technology solutions, service offerings, and best-in-class talent.

“OneUP” Culture

We operate under the concept of “One Unified Practice” and strive every day to enrich the lives of our clients, colleagues, and communities.

As an employee-owned firm, we are aligned for shared success. OneUP is our commitment to one another to grow and lift others along the way.

An Experienced Buyer

Since 2006, we have successfully integrated 40 independent RIAs.
