Break-Away Brokers:

The (Overstated) Trend of Captive Investment & Insurance Advisors Going Independent

Tiburon Strategic Advisors is pleased to highlight its research on Break-Away Brokers. The purpose of this research is to provide readers with an understanding of the (overstated) break-away brokers trend. Break-away brokers are generally defined as captive (employee) financial advisors from the wirehouses, regional brokerage firms, investment banks, private banks, retail banks, insurance companies, & even discount brokerage firms that choose to go indepedent, repositioning their businesses as independent advisors (independent reps and/or fee-based financial advisors (RIAs)). That said, industry data is extremely sloppy, with many sources confusing data for financial advisor teams, financial advisors, & registered assistants, other sources including financial advisors nudged out by their former employers due to low productivity (broken away brokers), and almost all sources including captive advisors that simply move to other captive models and independent advisors that move to other independent models. Hence, the goal of this research is to accurately measure the narrowly defined break-away brokers trend of successful financial advisors moving from captive to independent models. This research leads to critical conclusions for Tiburon's coverage of financial advisor channels, full-service brokerage firms, insurance agents, and independent advisors.
