Mr. Grist is a very resourceful fellow. I worked with him when he was with Schwab Institutional. I believe any Hybrid Platform that allows a single-signon and consolidated statements (without sacrificing advanced RIA Trading Capabilities) will win. I believe some of the custodians platforms supporting RIA firms still cannot handle commission-based trades on one system. Efficiency in integrating both might be key. The integration is a trait I’m often asked when speaking with a Hybrid Advisor interested in TradePMR.
