Invasion of the Practice Snatchers
One of the big talking points at the IPAC Investment Conference last week was the impact consolidators will have on the advisory market in New Zealand.
Consolidators are firms which go out into the accountancy and financial planning market and buy up firms with cash and share deals.
In New Zealand three Australian firms have been active (Harts, Stockford and Hayes Knight) and one other is expected to enter the market soon.
Australian financial journalist Tony Thomas, who wrote the highly acclaimed book Invasion of the Practice Snatchers, expects about half this country's mid-sized firms will be swallowed up by consolidators.
Thomas's merger handbook, Invasion of the Practice Snatchers, is available through Good Returns' bookstore.
