Financial advisors at independent broker/dealers surveyed in’s sixth annual IBD Report Card don’t expect to be moving around too much in the next two years.

As far as where the advisors came from, 50 percent of those at small broker/dealers came from another IBD, while 30 percent of those at large b/ds came from a broker/dealer.

For the purpose of this survey, large broker/dealers are those with 1,000 or more advisors and small b/ds are those with fewer.
