Investment Strategy

The financial advisory market is highly fragmented and represents a compelling buy-and-build opportunity as increasing regulation is driving consolidation and creating barriers to entry. Quality operators, such as Radiant, typically have high levels of recurring revenue and low customer attrition rates, with growth underpinned by strong, long-term, secular trends. 

Simon Cogman-Hellier

“We are focused on building a truly integrated group with an open and positive culture and it was important to us that our investor shared that vision. In Apiary, we believe we have found the perfect partner."
