Great model! Firms such as Dynasty that are able to build a community of advisors that can access open architecture products and services, leverage their scale with vendors and suppliers for the benefit of their clients, and offer true transparency in their services and pricing are positioned to attract advisors from both wires and larger independent brokerage firms. Advisors are seeking business relationships that can help them achieve efficiency and bring a level of credibility and trust to cultivate and solidify their high net worth client relationships, without the profit center and product conflicts. Dynasty is clearly taking the position that being on the same side of, rather than across, the table from advisors and their clients is the most successful place to sit.
