Combined Firm Offers Powerful Solution to RIAs
Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV), a leading provider of integrated wealth management solutions for financial advisors, announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Tamarac, Inc., a provider of portfolio management technology that enables RIAs to efficiently deliver customized individual account management to their clients. Envestnet has agreed to acquire Tamarac for $54 million in cash, subject to certain post-closing adjustments. The two firms, with the combination of their technology solutions, breadth of investment products and back-office operation services, are poised to transform the way RIAs deliver scalable, integrated solutions.
While Tamarac has developed industry-leading software for rebalancing, practice management, performance reporting and CRM integration, we value their market position within the independent RIA segment which is core to Envestnet’s growth initiatives. We are eager to leverage Tamarac’s highly sought-after solutions in combination with our integrated wealth management software and advanced portfolio solutions. As more advisors look to outsource to an integrated platform, we are uniquely positioned to meet this need–now and well into the future.”
Jud Bergman, Chairman, Founder and CEO of Envestnet.
Tamarac, founded in 2000 by current President Clive Matthew Springer, is headquartered in Seattle. The company currently has relationships with approximately 500 RIA firms , collectively managing over $250 billion in assets.
Tamarac CEO Stuart DePina will join Envestnet as Group President of Envestnet • Tamarac. DePina and his leadership team will continue to focus on integrated solutions for the RIA marketplace.
We are excited to build on the momentum Tamarac has generated with independent RIA’s seeking to streamline their operations through integrated technology and outsourced services. Now that we can leverage Envestnet’s solutions, Tamarac will accelerate many aspects of our strategic initiatives while allowing us to focus on our client’s needs,” DePina said. “We believe the combination of Envestnet • Tamarac will transform the way financial advisors support investors with Advisor Xi, one of the most comprehensive suites of technology and investment solutions available in the industry.”
