Acquisition supports MAI's growth within Ohio and fortifies the firm's investment management expertise


CLEVELAND – December 9, 2019 – MAI Capital Management, LLC (“MAI”), an independent registered investment adviser specializing in comprehensive investment and financial planning for high-net-worth individuals and families, announced its acquisition of Rodman Capital Management (“RCM”).

Located in Alliance, Ohio, RCM provides investment management for individuals, trusts, retirement plans, charitable organizations, corporations and estates. Since establishing the firm in 1988, David Rodman has provided professional investment management for clients to help them build a secure financial future. Rodman will assume the role of Wealth Manager and Managing Director at MAI.

“Over the last 30 years, David has demonstrated a commitment to designing quality investment management strategies and solutions that help his clients meet their financial goals,” said Rick Buoncore, Managing Partner at MAI. “He maintains a fiduciary approach, which is central to MAI’s client-first philosophy. We are excited to add David to our team and continue offering goals-based investment management solutions to our clients.”

“Joining with MAI provides an exceptional long-term solution for my clients,” said David Rodman. “I see an outstanding opportunity for my clients with MAI, as MAI brings the full depth and breadth of its considerable resources and experience to bear on helping my clients to achieve their financial goals.”

“MAI has achieved marked growth over the last two years, and has been strategic in identifying those partners who share the firm’s philosophy on planning and client service,” said John Copeland, Managing Partner at Wealth Partners Capital Group (“WPCG”). “This partnership aligns with MAI’s vision for growth and continues the firm’s mission of providing families and individuals with customized planning and investment expertise.”  

This is MAI’s fifth acquisition since taking a minority investment from WPCG, a financial services holding company, in July 2017. Earlier this year, MAI extended its geographic footprint with the acquisition of MTX Wealth Management in Reston, Virginia, in June 2019 and partnership with John D. Dovich & Associates in Cincinnati in July 2019. Previously, MAI acquired the wealth management division of CCI Financial Group in Akron, Ohio, in April 2019 and the wealth management division of Calfee Financial Advisors in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, in February 2018.

The acquisition closed on December 6, 2019 and will increase MAI’s assets under management by more than $75 million. Financial and legal terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
