"Ancora adds Inverness, is now managing $4 billion"
And some experts believe these kinds of combinations could become more common in the future as firms compete for business.
The merger creates the new, dedicated family wealth practice Ancora Inverness, which joins Ancora Advisors and Ancora Securities to comprise The Ancora Group.

Inverness, which according to managing principal Rick Renner had about $675 million in assets under management prior to the merger, places the combined company at more than $4 billion in total assets under management.
