My current firm requires me to declare any additional jobs (moonlighting). For about 10 years prior to joining this firm, I had provided ad-hoc advice to a group of friends who were quite successful in the entertainment industry. This advice is regarding a completely separate industry and area from any professional advisory services I provide through my firm - the two couldn’t be more unrelated.
