Relocated from the Moderation in Moderation thread under General in order to stay on topic.

I may be the wrong guy to ask.  I don't see much in the way of AGE going indy.  Then again, I'm known as a Wirehouse guy so they wouldn't necessarily be reaching out to me.

I don't think that the problems that you see at Brookstreet are indicative of the industry as a whole.  But the stability of smaller firms is something to consider when you make a move.

Yes, we often hear from reps at small or medium sized firms looking to enter (or re-enter) the big league.  Most are younger or mid-career with great momentum and growth potential.  They move for the obvious reasons (better support, net payout, name recognition, broken promises...).  Yes, we regularly hear concerns about a firm's investment style and product favoritism.  But I can't say there's a rush of "get me out of here" calls because of the CMO situation.

Thanks.  I've been lurking, mostly.

Decided to try posting again now that there's a little moderation.  Hopefully things will continue to improve.

More proof that for every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Yolanda...exactly what DID happen?  Did the margin positions of just a few brokers bring down the whole b/d?
