Lester P. Botkin shows his daughter Sara Botkin messages he is receiving hours after they both resigned from Morgan Stanley to start their own financial planning office in McMurray, Pennsylvania, March 20, 2015. The Botkins' experience is reflective of a growing number of top-producing brokers who are leaving the embrace of big banks like Morgan Stanley, Bank of America's Merrill Lynch and UBS Group to branch out on their own.
