Wells Fargo Dominates Recruiting Game

Posted on August 29th, 2014 at 12:50 PM

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law Offices:

Wells Fargo leads the 2014 recruiting game over Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and UBS. The reasons are several.

Wells Fargo Management emphasizes the firm’s culture and the differences that exist between it and its rivals.

Another reason is that the firm has focused on building multiple platforms, including wire, independent, bank and trust to attract high level advisers.

Finally, it also helps that legacy Wachovia advisers have stayed at Wells Fargo, even though the firm didn’t provide large scale retention packages when they purchased Wachovia. 

The attorneys of Eccleston Law Offices represent investors and advisers nationwide in securities and employment matters. Our attorneys draw on a combined experience of nearly 50 years in delivering the highest quality legal services.
