Those advisors already prospering by serving these high-net-worth clients will be invited to participate in a separate forum on the site.

Another blog, written by advisor Mike Patton and called the Road to Independence, chronicles in real time Patton’s experiences in setting up his own independent financial planning and advisor firm.
