  • Great show. Very conversational. Both guys confident RIA segment will continue to grow but I also worry about vulture investing and what kind of capital is comig into the Indy space.Shirl has done it well but some of the other players need money and dont care hwere they get it.

  • two smart guys lots of good insights clearly the space thats winning

  • one goes to zero commish the other just raised its bar 10%–which is better

  • I am a big Indy sceptic. I havent heard anyone address the issue of whos actually financing these firms until now. It is an issue though, the last thing we need as a industry is a bunch of shady, by that I mean not interested in client first only interested in a profit, types. At least these guys are acknowledging the issue, so kudos. Still caveat emptor!
