Though it would require RJ to ante up, RJ would materially up its game in hiring Tom Bradley, ezactlu when it's major firm competitors are celebrating their "win" in thwarting fiduciary duty and professional standing of their brokers in advisory services. It would greatly elevate the competitive market stature of RJ, but would entail retooling of support infrastructure,expanding upon its traditional financial planning orientation. A master stroke akin to entering the IB/D space 40 years ago.SCW
