MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--For the fourth year in a row, Bloomington-based JNBA Financial Advisors has been named to Barron’s list of the 1,000 top advisors in the country. In the magazine’s state-by-state rankings, Richard Brown, CEO of the independent, 34-year-old Registered Investment Advisory (RIA) firm, was ranked 2nd in Minnesota, up from 3rd in 2012.
“We’re proud to continue to be recognized as one of the nation’s top advisors,” says Brown. “As the demand for independent wealth advisors who act in their clients’ best interest increases, more and more people are turning to our dedicated team at JNBA to help them meet their goals. Our business model and approach to wealth management is what investors are telling us they’re looking for.” JNBA has also twice been named one of the nation’s top 100 independent wealth advisors by Barron’s and The Winner’s Circle.*
Barron’s ranked advisors on factors including quality of practice, assets under management, philanthropic work, revenue produced for the firm and regulatory record. In JNBA’s more than 30 years of doing business, it has developed a highly customized approach to wealth management and a focus on service that has helped the firm gain this national recognition. JNBA’s independent status allows the firm to customize investment strategies to individual client goals, which are implemented by an experienced team and disciplined process, including a review of each portfolio every 10 business days, says Brown. “Our clients appreciate our personalized service, helping JNBA to consistently receive an above 96 percent client retention rate,” he says. JNBA’s dedication to client service and providing individualized investment strategy has fueled the firm’s continued growth through a challenging economic period. The company expanded to Duluth, Minn., in 2010.
