Recapture Going Strong

By Peter Chapman

Commission recapture, despite predictions of its imminent decline, is growing at one of the top firms involved in the practice. At agency brokerage BNY ConvergEx Group, 279 new plan sponsor clients entered into its commission recapture programs in 2006, according to the firm. That's up from 217 in 2005, a 29 percent increase. That's also a record high for BNY ConvergEx's LJR Recapture Services since Lynch Jones and Ryan became part of what is now BNY ConvergEx in 2005, the firm says. "This is very encouraging news," said Todd Burns, senior managing director and division head of LJR Recapture Services.
