Do the wirehouses like ML or MS make expense budgets available to their financial advisors for the purposes of buying lunches or playing golf with prospects and clients?  How generous are they with expense budgets?

Of course they do.



And don't forget to ask for your complimentary company-owned Lexus.

At a wirehouse, essentially, an expense account is either at the discretion of the branch management, comes out of your gross or is extended to $1 million + producers.

Actually Smith Barney just instituted expense accounts ranging from $1000-$15000 per year based on production level.  This is only for people with at least 5 years length of service and producing 350K+.  This starts in 07.

The responses everyone has given so far have been a big help.  I'm glad to be part of this forum.

I had an expense account from the moment I walked in the doors of the bank.  The cc limit is $1500 I think, but I've never even come close to using that much in a month.
