Tiburon Media Coverage:

Tiburon was quoted recently in an InvestmentNews article titled Focus Financial Raises Goal for IPO to $600 Million. The company's revised goal from $100 million could be a sign that RIA valuations are rising. Article quotes Tiburon saying that the $2.5 billion valuation is impressive, as is the 3.8x revenues and 17.2x EBITDA.

Tiburon also contributed to the Financial Planning article titled Despite Explosive Asset Growth, Advisor Workforce Keeps Shrinking. Two seemingly contradictory trends are at work in the financial advice industry. While advisors managed $11 trillion in client assets in 2010, they now manage nearly double that, at $21 trillion. Article summarizes Tiburon Research Call on Financial Advisor Channels.

Tiburon executives have been quoted quite extensively throughout the industry and general media. A list and brief synopsis of those articles that the Tiburon staff has been able to locate (Tiburon accepts that there are probably hundreds of other quotes circulating) can be found at the link below.
