The RIA business' most prolific tweeter and blogger unexpectedly suspends activity with a semicryptic letter to his readers
Josh Brown, who's shown us how far and fast you can go by giving something of yourself through social media, is now taking an abrupt timeout for 'projects'
There is no way Josh Brown just quietly fades off into the sunset. It will be very interesting to see what “major projects” means. His social media and PR savvy were a thing to behold, and there is no question he will re-surface in an even bigger way. Having him pop back up with his own talk show or something of that nature would not surprise me at all. Strong voices need an outlet – I’m guessing whatever he does is somehow media oriented.
I can’t think of anyone who is as soulfully and doggedly outspoken and critical of Wall Street practices infecting financial advice — in a street-language kind of way — as Josh Brown. Were he to pop up on a higher platform, that could be good for promoting positive change in the advisory business both for practitioners and investors.
Brooke that’s a great point. I really hope that this is on the horizon for him, because if he brought this voice “mainstream” he would have significant influence on how the general public views the independent advisory community. Of course we’re looking at it through a media-oriented lens – I’m sure he pops up at a big 4 custodian or something when its all said and done, with some new initiative. But one dares to dream.
What will we all do with our snarky Twitter quota due to Mr. Brown’s creative ability? This is a bummer to hear. He truly was the voice of the people on a lot of Wall Street’s secrets that left many clients holding the (proverbial) bag. Jason is on the right track, would any of us be surprised if a custodian, etc. swooped in with a position? Hopefully, he is just recharging the batteries.
I think Josh made himself quite clear. The anger and angst that built a massive presence served its purpose. The energy that was directed at that cause has been refined, cleaned even. Now he is directing it toward the next phase of his career and presence.
Argh! Stupid smahtfone! Our should I say Swype. Quote=quite; and “served is” = “served its”; but you already knew that. Hey Brooke how about enabling edit of our comments?
I fixed it.
He’s used that star wars post in the past – when he needs a break and to recharge.
uh, false alarm?

Josh Brown and Barry Ritholtz want rock-star culture and rocketing growth in one RIA so they hired Jay Tini to manage the paradox
The dynamic New York City super-blogger duo now have a $2.8 billion AUM RIA and a 'massive fanbase' to cultivate, but they also foresee a need to rein in and retain
