Wells Fargo Bucks Trend and Increases Signing Bonuses for Veteran Brokers

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

Hurt by a recent bank scandal, Wells Fargo Advisors has decided not to follow in the footsteps of UBS, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley, all of which have announced they will discontinue paying recruiting bonuses.
