The #1 independent advisory firm in the country Edelman Financial Engines is buying Smart Investor in California. The RIA manages $680 million for hundreds of clients and also offers retirement plan management to small businesses.

Turning to another top RIA, Beacon Pointe just closed another merger. The female-led firm is joining forces with Benchmark Private Wealth Management in Texas. This marks Beacon Pointe's fourth acquisition in Texas, but its first-ever deal with a wealth advisory group initially connected to a bank.

Finally, Alera Group Wealth Services is adding $1.5 billion to its AUM through the acquisition of Johnson Brunetti. The retirement and investment specialist is based in Connecticut with eight offices in the northeast and one in Atlanta.
