Part II: RIA custodians' answer to challenges to their monolithic control: We still have big-time scale advantages
Roll-ups and other mezzanine firms are squeezing RIA custody margins as a value proposition but the big-brand custodians -- and some new ones -- are liking the cards they have to play
Mark Tibergien sets up Ben Harrison to challenge Schwabitrade with a $150 million cut to Pershing's minimum and millions more to develop Veo-busting technology

Pershing restores Ben Harrison as sole heir to Mark Tibergien -- for now -- but solo tenure may be temporary, with other top talent in the wings
Co-Head Maura Creekmore's departure leaves Harrison at the top by default, but the company is mum on future hiring and how much RIA autonomy gets sacrificed in name of 'convergence.'

Still a $2-billion cash-flow cow, the Swiss bank's 6,000-broker, US-based wirehouse is milking aging broker relationships with aging investors but needs a new kind of human presence, empathy, mindset and smarts to draw in Gen Z.

That someone at Schwab did not respond to your query while someone at Pershing did is meaningless. I have enjoyed a brief professional experience using Schwab’s platform and found it excellent as far as broker platforms go. On the other hand my experience with Pershing as a custodian can only be described as awful as far as their technology and general procedures are concerned. On the other hand the quality of their people was excellent. Pershing’s problem resides at the top, where no one is listening to the issues presented by their RIA clients, or they just don’t care. In a post diligence investigation, I only encountered RIAs who left Pershing, were leaving, or planned to leave, or wanted to leave. Each RIA cited the poor quality of Pershing’s technology and the unwillingness of the technology team to admit that their product was inferior. In comparison, Fidelity regularly interviews its clients asking for suggestions on how to improve the technology deliverable. Hubris brings everyone down to size. If Pershing itself displayed the quality and care of most of the individuals it employs, it might have a future, as long as it fixes what clearly doesn’t work.
