Orion will be courting rogue brokers with two events – an unusual move for a software company – after missing the boat in 2020 in a troubled pandemic year

The software giant from Omaha, Neb., Is trying to meet backlog demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic after many brokers saw the benefits of working independently from home.

Brooke’s Note: As in politics, two credible sources in the RIA world can look at a wall and one can say it is black when the other sees white. In this case, we have two credible sources that say 2020 was a year off for outliers and two other sources that said it was good – even hot. Fortunately, this article doesn’t rely on being sure either way. Certainly, Orion is investing a great deal of time and resources trying to encourage renegade activity and fill a void to bet on. There is no doubt that these two events are not « digital » or « technical » events, considering that the Omaha Company calls them renegade boot camps. In the meantime, you can’t help wondering if there’s more going on here. Will RIA custodians be less present in recruiting wirehouse brokers after 2020? Was this another year of radical fee compression on money market funds, bank deposits, revenue sharing and the complete zeroing of sales commissions?

While Orion Advisor Services isn’t technically recruiting, Clarke says his firm is constantly talking to advisors before they’re ready to go independent. Louis Diamond: « It’s been the busiest year in recruiting since 2014. »

“Many consultants are used to a 30-minute commute. But we’ve been working from home for 9-10 months and now they’re realizing that independence means they can have the flexibility to work from home, ”says Clarke.

Indeed, working from home could be an added push for consultants to leave their current businesses for reasons other than just commuting, says Diamond.

« They are starting to wonder why they are paying so much money to the companies, and working at home has helped them realize that they are more independent than they thought, » he explains. Pent-up Demand In 2020, Clarke said his firm helped 100 consultants drop out, a 20% decrease from last year. He blames the COVID-19 pandemic and not the RIA recruiters. Allois Pirker: « In my opinion, there were definitely a lot fewer outliers. » « The pandemic has really slowed the movement from consultants to existing firms to new firms, » ​​he says. « The pandemic has made it difficult to transfer accounts and hold meetings. » There is a great demand for counselors willing to take a break, but we are waiting for the vaccine to be distributed.

Pent-up demand

In 2020, Clarke said, his firm helped 100 consultants break loose, a 20% decrease from the previous year. He blames the COVID-19 pandemic and not the RIA recruiters.

« The pandemic has really slowed the shift from consultants in existing firms to a new firm, » he says. « The pandemic has made it difficult to transfer accounts and hold meetings.

« There is a lot of demand for counselors willing to take a break, but we are waiting for the vaccine to be distributed.

« This pent-up demand will manifest itself over the next 18 to 24 months. They won’t all be on hiatus in July, August, or September, but you will see that it will happen over time, » says Clarke. Brian Hamburger will lead a panel on transition, compliance and business creation. The pandemic has changed the circumstances of the consultants, and it is possible that they will feel even more energetic leaving the company, says Clarke. While the pandemic was disruptive to everyone, Pirker suspects that outliers will perform better than the 2008-2009 financial crisis. For example, many financial firms had a difficult reputation during the financial crisis. “A lot of companies had brand damage back then and were on the news about the rescue and that was a burden. This time it hadn’t happened. « I don’t think the outlier model has fundamentally changed. If someone wants to be independent, nothing has really changed. Only the logistics and timing have changed, » he explains.
