Apella Capital Expands East Coast Presence with Addition of Structured Asset Management
Berywn, Pennsylvania based wealth management firm brings $140 million in AUM
GLASTONBURY, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apella Capital, LLC (“Apella”), a financial advisory and wealth management firm serving individuals, families, and businesses, today announced Structured Asset Management, a registered investment advisor (“RIA”), has joined the firm. The acquisition expands Apella’s presence on the east coast and adds to its financial planning and investment management capabilities in the region.
Structured Asset Management (“Structured”) was founded by Bill Suplee and provides fee-only investment management and financial planning services. As a result of the acquisition, Structured clients will gain access to Apella’s broad range of resources, enhanced technology and expanded services. Bill will assume the role of Senior Financial Advisor and will be joined by his colleagues at Apella.
“We are thrilled to have the Structured team join Apella,” said Jim Scanlan and Rob Martin, Co-Presidents of Apella. “They have a strong client-first culture and share our passion for supporting families in the pursuit of their goals.”
Bill added: “We are committed to helping families and individuals gain and stay in control of their financial lives. Apella is aligned with that commitment, and we are confident that joining forces is in the best interest of our clients.”
This is Apella’s third acquisition of 2022 and second jointly with Wealth Partners Capital Group (“WPCG”), a financial services holding company that invested in the firm in Sept. 2021. Earlier this year, Apella announced its acquisitions of NR Smith and Associates and Metrist Wealth Advisors.
“Apella partnerships are centered on a strong cultural alignment, a shared focus on financial planning, and a unique investment philosophy designed to serve clients. The Structured advisory team embraces these values, and it was clear early on that Apella and Structured share a very similar approach to their clients, investing and service,” said Mac Selverian, Principal of WPCG.
The acquisition closed on September 30, 2022 and will increase Apella’s assets under management by approximately $140 million. Financial and legal terms of the deal were not disclosed.
