First post here under this identity. Too many people here know me under the other one, and I don't want it known that I'm asking this question.
When moving from one independent to another, is it possible to accomplish the transfers through a "negative consent" process instead of signing new ACATS forms?

I'm posting under this identity, since this is the only one I have.

So, the answer is....

No, as a matter of fact... no way in hell.

I have a friend who is considering moving from the Wachovia Full Service platform to their independent channel (Finet or something) and he says you can do it w/ negative consent letters (it's obviously an in house move though).

What is the problem with doing ACAT forms?  If you are moving to any kind of a decent firm, they should provide a transition team to help you process all of that.

Here I am...wouldn't want to disappoint you, Mr. 6.10 posts per day.  You have anything constructive to add or are you just being a prick as usual?

I see that new girdle you got for Xmas is a tad too tight. It's cutting off the circulaton from your head to your funny bone!
But seriously, no, I have nothing substantive to add to the "can I just move my clients to a new firm without asking them first?" discussion.
Happy New Year.

...OK, I'll laugh with you...
In case you were curious, it's not my question.  One identity is complicated enough for me.  I'm satisfied at LPL and unless things change for the worse, I don't like filling out ACATs enough to move.
Happy New Year back at ya.
