Investors are taking a hard look at the people managing their money. Elliot S. Weissbluth, the CEO of HighTower, has been a visionary on this issue for over a decade. In this whiteboard video, Elliot cleverly explains the difference between brokers and fiduciaries and sheds light on the main issues surrounding these denominations.
