Summary: 4thQuarter 2011 M&A deals were  down in volume. Schwab Advisor Services reports that there were only 57 M&A deals involving RIAs for the full year 2011 representing approximately $44 billion in total assets. There were 70 deals in 2010 representing $63 billion in AUM. It’s worth noting, however, that the 57 deals were still the second-most ever recorded by Schwab since it started counting them in 2004. The size of the average deal in 2011 was $798 million, the lowest average since 2005 and down from $895 million in 2010.
