I just transitioned from Chase to Independent.    I am looking for advice from others who made the transition from a bank to becoming Independent.  What should I say or do to get former clients to follow me?

Thank you!

Hi. I am starting an RIA mostly from scratch for 2016. I am a CFP & CFA but will be starting with very few assets. I will have a few million that will follow from my current firm, with whom I have a non-compete clause, and a couple more from a client/s that I worked with years ago. I am looking for advice too. Has anyone used Charles Schwab or IB? What have most done for a Website? Do you use FMG or whitebranded? Any opinions would be appreciated.

Hi guys,
I recently formed my own RIA (early 2015) and have been operating for the past 4-5 months. Feel free to reach out to me via PM and keep in touch.
