"Indie Firms Sweeten Deals for Recruits"
This is yet another Investment News article this week written by "old timer" Bruce Kelly. There is some possibly helpful info in that article for AGE advisors who are considering going independent.
I myself have limited knowledge of the pro's/con's/culture differences at the independents. Would suggest you do in depth due dilly before choosing "the right one" if that's the path you pursue.
Per RR's TOS policy, I can't post the direct link but it's easy to access:
