CLEVELAND, May 5, 2021 (Newswire.com) - RIA in a Box, a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of compliance, cybersecurity, and operational software solutions to the wealth management industry, announced it has completed its acquisition of ITEGRIA, a leading managed services provider of cloud-based virtual desktop solutions for registered investment advisors (RIA).
The transaction was facilitated by IT ExchangeNet, a global leader in smaller mid-market mergers and acquisitions focusing on IT Services businesses, MSSPs, MSPs, Microsoft, and Oracle channel partners. It marks the firm's 11th transaction in the past six months.
The strategic acquisition allows RIA in a Box to significantly enhance its cybersecurity and operational offerings to meet the needs of RIA firms. By combining forces, the company will serve approximately 2,200 RIA firms with over $400 billion in assets under management.
"We hired ITX because of their stellar reputation for facilitating the sale of Managed Services businesses," said Richard Mabbun, CEO and Founder of ITEGRIA. "They identified a diverse group of global buyers who knew our business, which allowed us to zero in faster on culture and chemistry. We could not be more pleased by the outcome of ITX's efforts."
The addition of ITEGRIA provides RIA firms access to the company's cloud-based virtual desktop technology, AdvisorCloud™, which enables RIA firms and their employees to securely access their work environment and data on virtually any device.
