Jim Palotta, founder of Raptor Group, recounts his humble beginnings growing up in the North End of Boston and tells of his uniquely American story of how he broke into financial services in the early 80's, after his father secretly barred him from his first job application. This video is excerpted from a piece published on Real Vision on March 12, 2019 entitled "Boston's Billion-Dollar Man."
