With its 4th acquisition announcement of 2023, and 28th in five years, fast-growing Allworth Financial defies cooling industry M&A trend, shows no sign of slowing down.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“As a close-knit, client-centric advisory firm, we knew what we wanted from a partner,” said McDaniel Knutson President Peter Knutson. “We were very clear that any agreement we entered into would have to both enhance the professional opportunities for our team members and increase the service offerings for our clients, and that is precisely what Allworth Financial delivered.”

“To partner with a national firm that emphasizes community service was important to us,” said McDaniel Knutson CEO Victoria Bogner. “Allworth cares about their partners, clients, the community, and their associates every bit as much as we do, and so this is a major step forward in the realization of the vision we have long had for McDaniel Knutson.”   

“The team approach and the dedication to their clients and staff is what most impressed us about the leadership of McDaniel Knutson,” said Allworth Co-CEO and Co-founder, Scott Hanson. “These are precisely the kind of professionals we are seeking to help us in our quest to continue to build Allworth, and so my Co-founder, Pat McClain, and myself, are excited to welcome all fourteen team members of McDaniel Knutson to the firm.”
