When my last adviser moved and wanted me to move with him I asked him to lower his fee. No brainer to ask, and he he pretty much had to. Not everyone is going to move. If he/she wants me to help them start their new shop etc, then I want more of the cut :)

And its a great time to ask yourself how your adviser is doing. Its easier and easier now to do it yourself, if you are on TMF, you are probably a DIY to some degree. Another thing you might want to do, is only give him/her half and move the other half somewhere where you can management and see who does better.

I am with Schwab, and 100% love them. Great products, easy of use, help if you want it, but they leave you along if you don't.

Good Luck.
