Disclaimer & Methodology: The InvestmentNews Advisers on the Move database is designed to capture all recruiting activity of retail financial advisers/teams of advisers as they move from one firm to another. The activity recorded within the database comes from a number of sources, including InvestmentNews and other media reports; press releases; direct submissions that have been reviewed by InvestmentNews; and regulatory filings. To qualify as a move, no more than 60 days can have elapsed between the date an adviser/team leaves one firm and the date they join another. Any adviser registration changes that came as a result of merger & acquisition activity are not recorded as moves in the database. Finally, please note that all AUM data is user-submitted and is not audited by InvestmentNews or any regulatory agency. When AUM data is unavailable, a “ — “ is listed in the record’s AUM field entry.
