I'm hoping to get some advice regarding leaving a large firm to manage a small book as an independent rr. Here's my situation:I currently have worked for the last two years at a major wirehouse here in NYC, but decided to go back for b-school and start at CBS in about 45 days. I haven't told my manager yet and instead of just quitting and leaving my book, I want to take my closest clients with me that are either (a) friends or (b) family. Total clients i want to take will be 7 for about 8 million and t-12 of around 80k. I spoke to LPL, but i needed to make over 124k in revenue last year to qualify which i didnt make last year. I could work under another LPL group here in the city but I'll have to give them another 8% of my revenue. So my question is this: In your exprience as an Indy, which clearing house would work best for a small book (80k) that basically consists of one Charitable lead trust and 6 other 500k-1m accounts? Thanks for your help.
