Savant Capital’s Growth Strategy in the Chicago Area


On May 21st, 2015, Savant announced that it was acquiring Orion Capital Management, an independent registered investment advisory firm.

With this latest acquisition, Savant’s Assets under Management (AUM) is expected to increase to approximately $4.5 billion.

This M&A deal seems to be in line with Savant CEO (Brent Brodeski)’s strategy to expand the firm’s footprint in Chicago and the surrounding IL areas.



This is the 3rd M&A deal that Savant has conducted in the last 24 months. It acquired Paragon Advisors, a $150M investment management firm, in January of 2014.

In January of 2015, Savant acquired Green, Plagge and Shaw, a St. Charles, IL tax and accounting firm.

“As we continue to deploy our growth strategy in the Chicago market, we look for Registered Investment Advisors that align with our corporate philosophies,” stated Brent Brodeski, Savant CEO.
