I was talking to some of my friends still at BAI, errr Merrill Lynch and was wondering what the thundering herd thinks of having a 40% cut in the grid on all leads/referrals provided by the bank? Its not too late. Get out and save yourselves like the rest of us have already done!! McCann should have no trouble picking off Merrill Brokers as the bank puts in more and more of its screw the broker policies. This 40% haircut is only the first of many to come. You have a new daddy now. Get used to it!
