Like I said initially, my "intent" is to assure AGE brokers are aware that history often repeats itself. I believe WB has learned from the mistakes made with previous mergers/acquisitions (particularly the PRUSec one). Quite a bit can be learned from that one for everyone.
I was not soliciting ANY information from AGE_Inside_Info. I passed along some information to him/her which is pertinent to this deal, too.
I have no interest in soliciting any AGE broker to jump ship or to stay for that matter. That applies to all brokers who post here. I am not a headhunter.
Best wishes to all brokers and their clients, including the AGE ones (including you).
Thanks for the best wishes. Go Badgers!
Some new articles today about the AGE-WB deal with possibly a little "new" information in Investment News.
One's by Bruce Kelly who followed the WB-PRUSec merger very closely and the other is by Kathy O'Donnell who followed the PRUsec mutual market timing mess very closely while at the Boston Globe.
Also, there's an AGE-WB article in the Charlotte Business Journal today. It's written by Will Boye who was with Wall Street Letter during the "merger" of Wachovia Securities and PRUSec.
This article is available only to paid subscribers but it again states WB has concerns with respect to retention of AGE brokers.
