A channel for the formation of stellar mass black holes (BHs) is through hierarchical mergers of smaller BHs. Repeated mergers between comparable mass BHs leave an imprint on the spin of the resulting black hole, since the final BH spin is largely determined by the orbital angular momentum of the merging binary system. It has been shown that a population of supermassive BHs that forms through repeated mergers will have a distribution of spin magnitudes centered around a dimensionless spin magnitude of $a \sim 0.
