Tiburon Media Coverage

Tiburon was quoted recently in the Wall Street Journal's article titled The Changing Landscape for Independent Advisors. The article said years ago, an advisor could hang out a shingle as a registered investment advisor and run a business with relatively little fanfare. The article quotes Tiburon saying that while twenty or more nationwide firms may emerge, small registered investment advisory firms will continue to survive.

Tiburon executives have been quoted quite extensively throughout the industry and general media. A list and brief synopsis of those articles that the Tiburon staff has been able to locate (Tiburon accepts that there are probably hundreds of other quotes circulating) can be found at the link below. These short summaries are intended to help prospective Tiburon clients, conference planners, and media representatives understand Tiburon's views on a wide variety of issues throughout the financial services industry. If you are a media representative interested in covering Tiburon, please email Sarah Sage.
