When it came to discussing the competitive environment and future of RIAs, Joe and I had far more similar answers than this article indicates. In the same interview cited here, when asked about the future, I explained the industry is going to be far more difficult and being a fiduciary is not enough, that certain costs needed to compete have risen dramatically and that advisors will have to be far more different to compete. Even after that, pricing will eventually compress. We share the same view of the space, but different views on how to address the coming challenges.
