Barron's Top 50 Private Wealth Management Teams
This is Barron’s first-ever ranking of wealth advisory teams that specialize in serving individuals and families. The teams are ranked on a variety of factors, including their size and shape, the regulatory records and credentials of their members and the resources they have at their disposal to serve their client bases. The teams listed specialize in managing wealth on behalf of individuals and families, as opposed to large organizations and companies. An increasing number of these teams provide services extending beyond investment management: estate planning, taxes and philanthropy.
Barron's Top 100 Financial Advisors
Barron’s “Top 100 Financial Advisors” bases its ratings on qualitative criteria: professionals with a minimum of 7 years of financial services experience, acceptable compliance records, client retention reports, customer satisfaction, and more. Financial Advisors are quantitatively rated based on varying types of revenues and assets advised by the financial professional, with weightings associated for each. Because individual client portfolio performance varies and is typically unaudited, this rating focuses on customer satisfaction and quality of advice. The rating may not be representative of any one client’s experience because it reflects a sample of all of the experiences of the Financial Advisor’s clients. The rating is not indicative of the Financial Advisor’s past or future performance. Neither THE FIRM nor its Financial Advisors or Private Wealth Advisors pay a fee to Barron's in exchange for the rating. Barron’s is a registered trademark of Dow Jones & Company, L.P.

Barron's Top 1,200 Advisors
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.
Barron's Top 100 Women Financial Advisors
The ranking reflects the volume of assets overseen by the advisors and their teams, revenues generated for the firms and the quality of the advisors’ practices. The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the top-ranked advisor.
Financial Times Top 400 Financial Advisors
The Financial Times 400 Top Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced annually by Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., on behalf of the Financial Times (April 2020). The FT 400 is based on data gathered from advisors, broker-dealer home offices, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s status in six primary areas: assets under management (AUM), asset growth, compliance record, experience, credentials and online accessibility. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of this advisor’s future performance. Neither the brokerages nor the advisors pay a fee to the Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 400.
Forbes America’s Top Wealth Advisor
America’s Top Wealth Advisors ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings and a ranking algorithm that includes: client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms.

Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receives compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking.

Crain’s New York Notable Women In Financial Advice
Honorees were selected based on several factors related to their particular roles in the field of financial advice.

For those who work in organizations that provide financial advice online, who work in a management capacity in an organization that provides financial advice or who in some way are expanding the boundaries of financial advice, criteria included the scope of the potential influence of the honoree’s work on the delivery and quality of advice, the size of the honoree’s organization and/or the extent of its innovation.
