Louis Diamond Quoted – By Miriam Rozen, AdvisorHub – A long-running trend of experienced broker attrition from wirehouses is ebbing, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo executives claimed in the past week.

Louis Diamond Quoted – By Janice Kirkel, Financial Planning – Analysts say the decision by Dynasty Financial Partners, the St. Petersburg, Florida-based RIA and turnkey asset management platform with $65 billion in client assets, to launch a $100 million IPO is what would be expected from a firm that has undergone measured rather than explosive growth with managers who have significant experience in the public markets.
Louis Diamond Quoted – By Jeff Benjamin, InvestmentNews – Dynasty Financial Partners is turning to the public equity markets to support its strategy of helping wirehouse representatives break away to become independent financial advisers. “The IPO is very exciting as a further validation of the success of the RIA space,” said Louis Diamond, president of Diamond Consultants.
