Actually, what we asked for was a low rent journalist... and I think I see Geraldo's moustache approaching in the distance.

I am going to call the reps at the wires and offer them a way out. The smaller reps and maybe the ones that are close to retirement 5 years or so.
I will offer them an earn out over several years.
 
It may not be great but they get nothing if they stay at there firm and wait to  get starved out @ 20%.
 
I have a feeling some of the reps just want to leave and this will give them some income from there work.
 
It cannot hurt to ask.

I have talked several reps at UBS & MS.
 
No takers yet?
 
But the UBS reps are not even concerned about the future of there firm! Either they are in doubt or they feel they are above the cut. Small office 5 reps.
MS reps I talked to are more concerned not ready to try any thing yet, they want to see what the SB merger will look like.

Is there a specific reason you keep repeating yourself over and over again.
We heard you the first time.

S&P, has puberty got you down?  You seem a bit more moody than everyone else.  By the way, any time you're ready to add some real value to this forum, then feel free.

Talk of proposals has emerged following a UBS management meeting in Sydney last week, Data Room has learned. One would see UBS offload its entire wealth management arm, with Bell Potter Securities a possible landing pad. Commercial property professionals across the UK - agents, chartered surveyors and property owners - currently advertise over 40,000 commercial properties and land for sale on Right move. UBS AG is a Swiss global financial services company headquartered in Basel and Zürich, Switzerland. It provides investment banking, asset management, and wealth management services for private, corporate, and institutional clients worldwide, as well as retail clients in Switzerland.
