Election 2012: A Donors' Who's Who
As the election approaches, advisors and their firms are watching closely. There's a lot at stake from tax reform to healthcare and the fiscal cliff, so it's no surprise that many banks and their CEOs are dropping their two cents (or $200,000) in the political piggy bank. But who's giving where?
