Impact of Coronacrash on Advisor Moves

A question we’ve heard a lot lately  is “are people really transitioning right now?”   While the  Pandemic shut down everything from schools and restaurants to sporting events and travel these past few months, one thing it didn’t slow was the flow of advisors transitioning to new broker-dealers.

In fact, some of the biggest moves we’ve seen in years took place after the start of stay-at-home orders near the end of March.  These moves prove the resiliency of the industry as well as the deep pockets and optimism of some of the biggest BDs.  

Here are the Top 10 moves according to AdvisorHub during the Corona quarantine.

Challenging times can actually uncover the shortcomings,  poor support, and inadequate technology platforms that many advisors have been forced to use. It is likely we’ll see moves like these increase above normal levels over the coming months.
