I would be surprised if either firm would take you.

Given your incredible attention to detail.

When I was leaving ML to go independent I looked at both. Both are excellent.

As I recall RJ strengths were a broad platform, self clearing, great midcap research and a lot of former wirehouse guys in their indy channel. Downside was the advisory platform was kind of awkward for the type of business I do (former PIA).

Commonwealth was very high touch, a little more expensive, but very classy. A lot of former Ameriprise and captive insurance folks on their platform. Not a lot of former wire guys to get references from.

This was 3 years ago, so much may have changed.

At the very least, set up due diligence trips to both places if you are serious. It will be well worth the time.

It would help if we knew more about your relationship.  Who is the "biggest" producer? When doorknocking which one goes to the backdoor? Do you host semen-ars or does he?

SuperMan, either someone hijacked your posting ability here, or you've excercised poor judgement in your language/content.

Do you see how ridiculous those comments are?  Yet you want a similar comment against someone who asked a simple question to be "post of the year"?  Can you say hypocrite?

lovindaindy - Nothing similar here.  I pointed out a comment that was funny as written by the poster.  You changed a post you quoted to fit some agenda of yours. Only explination is that you must be part of the liberal left media, changing another persons quote.

As for hypocrite, can't say that, but I can say douche bag.  As in lovindaindy is a serious douche bag.
