Anyone who has to sell their services via these bribes is either so new that they have no client base or so bad that no one will refer them. I confess, I've never been to one of these dinners though, having the impression they were more about selling you annuities than developing a long term investing relationship with you.

Actually, dinner seminars are popular because they are one of the most effective ways to get more clients. If they didn't work, the financial services industry wouldn't use them. Conversion rates from attendees are pretty high and the ROIs tend to be high.

Every advisor has his or her own business goals and ways of building a business. Every client has their own way of planing for their future and finding advice.
