Important award and accolade disclosure(s):
Barron’s Lists and Recognition. Rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. Factors included in the rankings: assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities.
Financial Times Top 300 RIAs (“FT300”). Selection is based on the FT’s views of the performance of RIAs reporting to the SEC $300 million or more assets under management (“AUM”) in six primary areas, including: AUM, asset growth rate, the firm’s years in existence, SEC compliance record, industry certifications of key employees and online accessibility. AUM and asset growth comprise roughly 80-85% of the advisor’s score. The FT300 is presented as an “elite group” rather than a competitive ranking of 1 to 300. Neither the RIA firms nor its employees paid a fee for inclusion in the FT300.
America’s Top Women Advisors by Forbes. Ranking algorithm is based on quality of practice, such as: telephone and in-person interviews, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, such as: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criteria because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC which does not receive compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking.
