Independent channels are gaining market share from captive channels. The number of financial advisors electing to leave the large captive financial institutions to become independent has accelerated over the past years. ActiveAllocator is a valuable recruiting tool for we bring superior asset allocation and portfolio construction practices only available to the ultra-high-net-worth segment, now to the affluent customer segment, and at a fraction of the cost.
Many broker-dealer platforms attract experienced advisors who have had established practices elsewhere. It takes time for new advisors to reestablish their practices and build revenues.

The fiduciary rule results in big shifts in retirement plan and account management, including more reliance on automation and more fee-based payment over commission-based products. New regulations aim to ensure that investors receive appropriate advice at transparent cost. This change expands the scope of responsibilities for retirement asset fiduciaries as it seeks to eliminate conflicts of interest and forces broker dealers to become fiduciaries. It creates a focus on ongoing management of assets as opposed to product sales. Managing smaller retirement accounts will likely become much costlier and increase liability for broker dealers, advisors and others leading the industry to seek technology-enabled, outsourced solutions to serve smaller accounts. Rising compliance costs, remuneration changes, lower margins, value received for fees are all drivers of change. The DOL regulation is an opportunity to reimagine the level of service and personalization that you provide to your customers. ActiveAllocator helps you move old commission-based accounts into fee-based managed account programs efficiently and start serving them quickly.
