The Big Switch...

The Big Switch How coaching helped a Financial Advisor bring his clients over to his new firm
A case study by Success Skills Coach Jim Rohrbach

“Did you ever have to make up your mind?
 You pick up on one and leave the other one behind
It’s not often easy and not often kind Did you ever have to finally decide?” The Lovin’ Spoonful

Successful financial advisors are constantly being recruited to join a new firm. With promises of a big payday, better working environment and enhanced capabilities for serving clients, an offer can be hard to refuse.

Yet changing firms is never an easy decision. Even after careful consideration to make the leap, FA’s run into a myriad of both anticipated and unforeseen challenges: Getting told “no” by clients who you were sure would come along with you, having your name dragged through the dirt by former colleagues, feeling your head spin with unfamiliar people and processes. All this can lead one to ask, “What the heck was I thinking???”

Such was the case for Mike B,* a west coast transplant who moved to a major Midwestern market. He contacted me one December after joining a new organization the month before. Mike had built a nice-sized book of business over the prior decade but felt constrained by a partnership that had been deteriorating for several years. He was brought over by John C,* the manager of a large office, who negotiated a hefty up-front signing bonus with Mike that tied him to the new firm for the next nine years. Read more>>

Financial Advisors and Brokers believe that the SEC will deliver a fiduciary standard because consumers want it…

Investment News, Jeff Benjamin reported, on 3.16.2018  – reported that the latest blow to the Department of Labor’s Fiduciary Rule continues to divide the financial advice industry including Financial Advisors and Brokers.

“It’s a shame we keep having these conversations when we should just put our foot down, because there shouldn’t be an argument about whether it’s good to put the clients’ interests first,” said Elliot Weissbluth, chief executive of HighTower Advisors.

Reacting to Thursday’s ruling by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, which vacated the DOL fiduciary rule, Mr. Weissbluth called out those that have opposed the fiduciary rule. Read more »

FINRA to streamline Broker Dealers Exams...

CEO Robert Cook says three examination teams may be consolidated

Investment News, Mark Schoeff Jr. reported on 3.20.2018 – that Finra could streamline its examination program this year for Broker Dealers.

Robert W. Cook, president and chief executive of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Inc., said the agency is reviewing the structure of its exam function, which involves three teams: sales practice, risk oversight, and operational regulation and market regulation.

“We’re going to be looking at whether it makes sense ultimately to consolidate — if so, how — or to coordinate. That’s a decision I expect we’ll be making this year,” Mr. Cook said Tuesday at the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Compliance & Legal Society conference in Orlando, Fla. Read more »
