To say it’s a time of flux in the broker-dealer and independent advisory industries doesn’t do it justice. Compliance, fiduciary standards, succession planning, margin squeeze—not to mention lawsuits related to Medical Capital and other poorly thought-out products—all mean more for BDs and reps to think about in addition to the baby boomer retirement, recovery from the worst global financial crisis in history and ... oh yeah, the day-to-day pressures of running a business. With all that in mind, which broker-dealers are thriving, which are merely surviving and which are shutting their doors? We present the 2011 Broker-Dealer Reference Guide, a review of the top BDs in each major category to help you sort it all out, and ensure a lasting and profitable relationship for you and your clients.
