Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if the Wealth Advisor is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement of the Wealth Advisor by any of his/her clients. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized Wealth Advisor. Rankings are generally limited to participating advisors. The Wealth Advisor does not pay a fee to be considered for any ranking or recognition, but may purchase plaques or reprints to publicize rankings.
IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE INFORMATION – BARRON’S TOP ADVISOR BY STATE
The 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.
