I’m aware MarketsFlow is planning M&A in the USA and UK and, if I read correctly on CC, after the launch of the accessible portfolios, a Hedge Fund also approached MarketsFlow to acquire it!
One of the things that struck me is that these firms are willing for MarketsFlow to acquire them not with its own equity or cash but with the future revenues arising from the value-added through M&A. This is extraordinary and I think eye-catching. I think MarketsFlow could substantially benefit (resource-permitting) from actively approaching more firms for M&A under that model.
Although it is an ‘inorganic’ means of growth, I believe that it’ll help fuel organic growth in future (having more AUA and AUM as a base helps build market credibility to organically take on some more, in my view). Indeed, if the acquisitions were strategically distributed across the geographies of the jurisdictions MarketsFlow operates in, it’ll help increase the brand awareness and generate leads accordingly.
I think this could be a real winner in the MarketsFlow Growth story.
