Ipreo Publishes New Discovery Data Rep Movement Study, June 2015 YTD

New York – August 24, 2015 – Ipreo, a leading financial services industry provider of data and analytics on firms and professionals, has published a new edition of its Discovery Data Rep Movement Study. Covering June 2015 year-to-date, its most recent study provides insights on registration history where a rep moves from one firm to another.

Between January 1 and June 30, 2015* Discovery Data tracked 20,649 rep moves from one firm to another. When compared to rep movement in 2014, the level of activity in the first half of 2015 is down 32%.

“Insights like these are very valuable to our clients and even ourselves for our own knowledge and to better serve the marketplace and offer guidance,” stated Bob Herrmann, Managing Director of the Global Asset & Wealth Management division of Ipreo. “But this is a tricky topic to analyze as registration filings don’t all magically come to us the same month a rep moves. It has taken us years to time this study just right and be able to offer the breakdowns of types of moves within our analyses.”

To qualify for this study, Discovery Data verifies a rep is registered with a broker-dealer or investment advisory firm and has submitted their Form U4.

Clients of Discovery Data reference this study to help with business and strategic planning throughout the year. Updates are provided quarterly and made available within Discovery Data. If requested, clients can be provided the full dataset behind this study or engage Discovery Data to conduct a custom analysis. A complete overview and analysis of the industry, along with the full dataset, are also available to Discovery Data clients as a subscriber to Discovery Data Market Insight.

*Not all rep moves that occurred in the first half of 2015 have been recorded within Discovery Data at this time. As the study is updated moving forward any additional moves will be incorporated.
