To kick start this year’s season, Tina Powell has a one-on-one conversation with Brian Hamburger. As the architect behind many of the best independent investment firms, Brian is the Founder, President, and CEO of MarketCounsel, a regulatory compliance consulting firm. He is also the Founder and Managing Member of the Hamburger Law Firm; a practice focused on the investment and securities industry.
In addition to being an entrepreneur, Brian wears many hats. In addition to being a father to three children, he’s an attorney, columnist, and an outspoken industry advocate for independent investment advisers. Most recently, Brian was featured on Barron’s Podcast The Way Forward speaking about Mergers and Acquisitions in the Wealth Management Industry.
Brian explains that his entrepreneurial spirit was instilled in him ever since he was a child, watching his parents and grandparents grow from working in textile factories to owning ice cream shops, auto body shops, and advisory practices. His role model, his grandmother, pushed him into the field of law. She told him, ‘If you understand the rules and laws, you can take that creativity to do great things.
Besides speaking at regional and national conferences, he has his annual gathering of the industry’s top advisors and thought leaders. He emphasizes the value that these kinds of conferences offer the industry and feels extremely grateful for the recognition it’s receiving. As a result of his years of hard work and dedication, he has been named an Innovator in “Investment News’ 2020 class of Icons & Innovators” and included in “The IA25: Investment Advisor Magazine’s Annual List of the Top Influential People in the Industry” in 2020.
