Hollywood's Business Managers
Clients choose their money managers based on comfort level, and the L.A.-based Lizer, who represents such old-time Hollywood stars as Sidney Poitier and Jackie Collins, respects a client's ideas about where they want to put their money. Can business managers be as creative as their clients? "Creativity doesn't just mean painting," says Lizer, who also works with Caroline Kennedy to raise capital for youth-based charities. "There's always times when you're doing financial planning where a curveball comes your way, and you have to figure out how to make adjustments."
