I agree with Mr. Roame that a Wall Street firm will spin off it’s salesforce. Embedded in that statement is the reason why I think it will happen. Top Wall Street advisors have transitioned from being salespeople to being advisors. Clients don’t want to be sold and Wall Street’s cost structure doesn’t allow them to support advisors vs. salespeople. They can realize value however from spinning off their saleforce while they are still “locked-up” in recruiting and retention deals!

Sounds like a great conference.

I concur Jeff. I’d add that producers are becoming more and more entrepreneurial and as such the wirehouse model is too controlling.
