"Given that it is something that can be done in the financial planning world, we're of the feeling there's no reason it couldn't happen other than the fact that aggregators would be feeling they're the ones who are going to miss out on revenue."
And this, Dinte said, isn't reason enough to shackle brokers to trail agreements.
"In a perfect world of competition, the aggregators offering the best service or best meeting the needs of their members are the ones who are going to attract brokers. If aggregators were in a position where they were losing a lot of people they would have to look internally to see where they're falling down and where they need to lift their game," he said.
Dinte said the call among brokers for transferrable trail is growing.
"People are starting to say enough is enough, and at some point you have to draw a line in the sand and say you're going to fight for your rights," he said.
And this groundswell is growing as more financial planners move into mortgage broking, Dinte suggested.
