Scale is important but technical competency is essential. Fiduciary duty is all about how one does business. Can b/ds treat trade execution as a cost center to be minimized? Can they advance a prudent process that holds brokers accountable for every recommendation they have ever made? Can they advance a more modern approach to portfolio construction that makes continuous, comprehensive counsel possible as required for fiduciary duty and professional standing? If Arnold directly addresses these issues scale is indeed important. Yet market share is determined by the advisors value proposition. SCW
