Brooke Harrington spent eight years and more than 34 thousand dollars training to become a wealth manager - learning the tricks of the trade to keep the assets of super rich clients from the grasping hands of governments, divorced spouses and aggrieved relatives ... at least that's how they see it. Her training gave her access to people who manage personal fortunes bigger than the GDP of entire countries. In an article for The Atlantic magazine she outlines how wealth managers exploit legal loopholes and tax havens ... and the consequences that has. She also explores the surprisingly close personal relationships between wealth managers and their multi-millionaire and billionaire clients.
