Mercer Capital is proud to again be a sponsor at the 23rd annual Acquire or Be Acquired (AOBA) Conference. AOBA takes place January 29-31 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Acquire or Be Acquired Conference is the financial industry’s premier bank M&A conference for bank CEOs, senior management, and board members. It brings together key leaders from across the country to explore merger and acquisition strategies and financial growth opportunities.
Mercer Capital is also speaking on Monday, January 30th. Andrew K. Gibbs, CFA, CPA/ABV, senior vice president, and Jay D. Wilson, Jr., CFA, ASA, CBA, vice president, will present “How to Create Strategic Value in the Current Environment” alongside Chris Nichols, Chief Strategy Officer at CenterState Banks, Inc.
Against a backdrop of compressed net interest margins, enhanced competition from non-banks, rising regulatory and compliance costs and evolving consumer preferences regarding the delivery of financial services, many community banks find themselves at a significant inflection point where traditional growth strategies like building or acquiring an expansive, and often expensive, branch network are being reexamined. In this session, we will examine how banks can utilize a hybrid approach and co-opt, partner with or acquire fintech companies, wealth management and trust operations and insurance brokerages. By pairing traditional banking services with other financial services and means of delivery, banks can obtain more touch points for customer relationships, enhance revenue and ultimately improve the bank’s valuation.
