Creative Planning acquires $5B RIA in firm’s largest deal yet

May 5, 2021

April 30, 2021 10:47 AM Creative Planning has reached more than $75 billion in AUM — which is up more than 50% since the beginning of 2020 . The Overland Park, Kansas-based RIA unveiled acquisitions of Lenox Wealth Management ($600 million in AUM) and Miller Financial Management ($150 million) in August, as well as Sunrise Advisors ($700 million) in June. Mallouk’s firm is “not pursuing everything that comes our way” but considering more potential deals in cities with major sports teams and some secondary markets, he said in an interview. SBSB fit Creative Planning’s criteria of firms that lead with planning and have similar cultures. Advisors Peter Speros, Greg Sullivan and James Bruyette launched McLean, Virginia-based Sullivan, Bruyette, Speros & Blayney in 1991. Sullivan, Bruyette, Speros & Blayney “There is a lot of value in having a firm that doesn't overly compromise,” Mallouk says. “They became very very attractive because of how pristine they were when we met them.” Sullivan and fellow principals James Bruyette and Peter Speros launched the practice in 1991, at a time when Sullivan says a fee-only practice “sounded like a crazy idea.” The firm has 62 employees and an additional office in Raleigh, North Carolina. The partners are excited to get more time to work with clients and other advisors at their firm, now that Creative Planning will be taking on more of the administrative, compliance and other tasks, Sullivan says. Many more advisors and clients are now gravitating towards fiduciary planning than in the days when they launched the firm, according to Sullivan. “Unfortunately, still in the industry there are way too many people calling themselves financial planners who are really just gathering assets and they're not doing the deep dive with their clients on the planning issues,” he says. “We still need more people to be able to provide the more comprehensive depth of services that I think many clients are asking for but they don't know what they're not getting. The quality of advisors available today has increased significantly over the past 30 or 40 years, and it will continue to improve and get better.”
