“I’m thrilled to see these seven wealth managers recognized by Barron’s for their excellence this year,” said Peter Mallouk, President & CEO of Creative Planning. “Their dedication to our clients is evident in everything they do, from coordinating team-based solutions across investing, taxes, estate planning and more to sharing knowledge with our nationwide team so that everyone can benefit from their wisdom.

Barron’s published its first advisor ranking in 2004 to “shine a spotlight on the nation’s best wealth managers and raise the bar for industry standards.
