Do you know what a fiduciary is? If you do (and you never went to law school), that knowledge may be based on the mission and vision of Elliot Weissbluth.
Weissbluth is the founder and CEO of HighTower, a firm of fiduciary advisors with an open-source platform of various industry-leading financial products and solutions. To those outside of the finance sector, this means that instead of working with one financial institution’s broker, who sells you an option of that institution’s products and services, you work with an independent advisor who is legally obligated to advise you on the best product or solution for your portfolio -- from various financial institutions.
When Weissbluth founded HighTower in 2007, he entered the finance industry as a disruptor from the outside. Now, however, he is regarded as an industry figurehead, and he has been included on Worth Magazine’s Power 100 list, Investment Advisor’s list of top 25 most influential people in the industry and many more in recent years. He is also a regular guest on CNBC, Fox Business and Bloomberg.
Weissbluth is not only passionate about the financial industry, but he also has a lot of unique insights about starting a business in a new industry, scaling that business, securing funding, growing a team and more.
Here are his keys to entrepreneurial success when disrupting an industry.
