Bates Group Expands Client Base with the Acquisition of Client Engagements from D Nauss and Associates LLC

Bates Group, a leading provider of custom compliance support and services for Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs), has completed the acquisition of select client engagements from D Nauss and Associates LLC, founded by industry veteran Donna Nauss in 2009. This strategic acquisition underscores Bates Group’s dedication to growth and continued commitment to the RIA compliance marketplace.

“As Donna prepares to transition away from the business, her priority remains ensuring her clients continue receiving the exceptional advice and guidance they value,” said Bates Group CEO Ben Pappas. “Bates is dedicated to ensuring they receive the same high-quality compliance expertise, service, and care they've come to expect throughout their years of partnership with Donna.”

“I feel blessed to have found the team at Bates Group – I truly believe my clients are in good hands,” said D Nauss and Associates founder Donna Nauss. “Bates shares my practical approach to compliance, has terrific bench strength, and a clear focus on what makes an important client focused relationship. I look forward to helping my clients make a smooth transition to Bates Group.”

We're excited to welcome Donna’s valued clients to Bates Group. We understand this transition is important, and we are committed to ensuring a smooth and seamless experience for everyone involved. We remain dedicated to providing all Bates Group clients with the highest level of personalized attention and support.
