How Wall Street REALLY Works

At Snider Advisors, we have six fundamental principles that we live by.  Principle number one one is that most investments are designed to make Wall Street rich, not you.  In other words, there is a false belief among retail investors that their financial advisors are in business to make you money rather than themselves.   

If you still believe that, you need to read this article in the December 2007 edition of Conde’ Nast Portfolio.  It was sent to me by one of our students who suggested I might have written it under a different name.  This is highly recommended reading for anyone who has money under management. 

Tip of the hat to Tommy Gwinn for turning us on to this article.
