I recently sat down with three of the wealth management industry’s leading experts in advisor recruiting for our inaugural Recruiting Roundtable video, which was moderated by WSR Managing Editor Chris Latham. We spoke with Jeff Nash, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Bridgemark Strategies; Jodie Papike, President of Cross-Search; and Ryan Shanks, CEO and Co-Founder of FA Match.
