President & CEO Drew McMorrow, MBA, CFP®, was featured in Financial Advisor’s July 2018 Cover story Standing Still is Not an Option. He discussed the advantages of the RIA channel and changes posed to the industry in the wake of the end of the DOL rule. As RIAs adapt to these and other changes, more have been offering resources for the next generation and expanding into the impact investing space, which Ballentine has been doing since the hiring of our Director of Impact Investing in 2010.

“I already see that those of us who subject ourselves to the fiduciary standard are beset with a lot of regulations. It feels like the pressure is mounting on us, when it should be mounting in favor of the consumer interest.”–Drew McMorrow
