  • Use and Misuse of Social Media Social media is an inexpensive and effective way to communicate with established and prospective clients.  Nevertheless, when RIAs utilize social media to promote their advisory practices, they risk compliance problems for their firms.
  • Registration Requirements for Investment Advisor Representatives (IARs) When individuals launch an advisory firm, they must avoid marketing themselves or the firm as investment advisors before they are properly approved and registered.  Otherwise, they are subject to severe penalties.  

In a blog posting for AdvisorOne, Knut Rostad of Rembert Pendleton Jackson and The Institute for the Fiduciary Standard questioned whether Elliot Weissbluth of HighTower Advisors misspoke when he claimed his firm had “zero conflicts of interest.”

In the interests of allowing you to judge for yourself, we present below a video from the Market Counsel Member Summit in September in Las Vegas that shows Rostad asking his question and Weissbluth answering it.
