I'm entertaining idea of leaving a big wirehouse to join a well known RIA. Obviously both have their pros and cons. I intend to stay in the business another 25 years and am curious to hear what others here think the future of the wirehouse model will be in say 10 years. What will happen to the 300k solo practicioners there? What will happen to the 2-3million production teams? What will the RIA landscape look like? What will the mass-hiring practices of the wirehouses look like down the road?
