Upon closing, The Colony Group will have a total of 12 offices in six states with over 150 employees.

"It's not just the similarity of our services or how we further enhance each of our capabilities that's attractive, but our shared commitment to deliver on our promises to our clients." "We are delighted to see the two firms come together. Colony has a strong track record of growth since joining Focus in 2011. The firm has set a great example in facilitating merger transitions with expanded geographic presence and client base," said Rajini Kodialam, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer at Focus Financial Partners, of which Colony is a partner.
