BOSTON, April 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chairman and CEO of The Colony Group, Michael Nathanson, and the firm's Vice Chair, Robert GIovsky, were among the featured speakers at the 2014 Barron's Top Independent Advisors Summit, recently held in Phoenix, AZ. Both executives have been featured speakers at prior Barron's conferences. This year, they spoke about the industry-wide priority of succession planning for future generations of clients and advisors.
In its most recent list of "The Top 100 Independent Investment Advisors," Barron's magazine ranked both Nathanson and Glovsky among the top 25 independent investment advisors in the nation, the sixth time that each executive was included on the list.
