Wow. Pretty interesting read, even from a few years ago.

So what's the latest on Jones' "diversification" trip now days?

I have to agree with WestH's views on this.
I was formerly with Jones also, & now w/ Indy firm (not LPL).
I do miss the trips & networking w/ other IR/reps. Yes, Jones did a first rate job with those trips. But I also hate paying the taxes afterwards.

I wonder how much of the 60% Jones takes from you, that they use to pay for those trips.

As one Indy firm recruiter told me once:
"After your 90% payout, spend 1, 2 or whatever % you want & take your family on vacation trips to any damn place you want. You're still way above Jones' 40% payout..."
