Note: Our analysis represents starting points for payouts. A number of special policies are not included here since they do not affect 100% of the advisor population evenly and therefore are more haphazard to compare. Individual results can vary dramatically, based on the mix of business and policies at each firm. For example, pay can rise from special bonuses and fall from penalties such as discount sharing, small client limits, and ticket charges

Assumptions for Basic Pay: 25% in individual stocks; 25% in individual bonds; 25% in mutual funds; 25% in fee-based (wrap accounts, managed accounts, etc.); length of service is assumed to be 10 years. Assumes no bonuses from growth, nor asset-based bonuses, or other behavior-based awards. Optional potential voluntary deferral calculations assume 25% of pay voluntary contribution amount. Company matches on optional voluntary deferral programs limited to non-profit sharing based. Also excludes voluntary deferral matches, 401k matches or profit sharing contributions unless otherwise noted.
