When (if?) banks spin off their wealth management divisions there is no overall reduction in conflict of interest. Shifting those assets to a new company changes nothing unless the advice and product operations are separated from EACH OTHER.
And if the commercial terms of the separation require the former owner of the conflicted business to deliver client referrals to the new owner of the conflicted business, that is just compounding the whole conflict of interest issue.
