Written by: Jeff Thomas

Jeff Thomas, CEO of Archetype Wealth Management, and Matt Gilbert, Principal of GAP Advisors, share how the current economic environment is impacting both business owners looking to transition and third-party buyers.

  • For buyers, the current environment is extremely attractive as interest rates have gone to the floor.  Buyers are thinking long-term and are looking through this season to see the opportunity and future trajectory of the business.
