Many of the top advisors seem to be registered as an RIA. It seems like little to no difference in the way they do business, though, when watching their presentations, and when observing their presence in the RJ system.

 
What would it look like to go RJFS 90% to RJFS RIA? Has anyone here done it? Can Passport accounts convert as is? Can I still do my 10% in A and C shares?
 
Why don't more do it?
 
What are the trade-offs?
 
For those of you on the outside, RJ offers both platforms, but does not necessarily offer a lot of mechanics on the "how to" without seeking it out. Thought I'd start here before going to them for the run down to get some ground level experiences if possible.

I believe you will have to repaper all of your accounts, and I'm hesitant to say if Passport can go over or not (but probably).  Why not just go with the Ambassador program?
 
Also, clarify 10% in A shares and C shares.
