Banning embedded commissions not only separates the rich from the average but it also keeps the average from obtaining the advise they need to potentially improve their financial situation. Plus, advisors may not be able to service children from clients who have money because their children are just starting out and they have no money. This will cause an issue with the client that will either end the relationship or force the advisor to service the client’s child for free. Furthermore, advisors become hard pressed to take on and/or keep clients that have little or no assets.
