Presumably, sometime during 2014, FINRA will implement Regulation 13-02. This rule will require financial advisors who change broker-dealers to disclose the compensation they received from their new firm as part of the recruitment deal.

The rule has many public supporters — including the major wirehouses and regional broker-dealers — and detractors, which include many recruiters.
