MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WE Family Offices, the family office serving UHNW individuals and families, ranked number one among Miami area independent registered investment adviser firms (RIAs) based on its more than $2.7 billion in total assets under management (AUM) at year end 2013. The ranking was produced by BrightScope, an independent financial information provider. WE reported AUM of $1.6 billion at year-end 2012.
“We’ve designed the firm to put clients’ interests first. Plain and simple,” says firm CEO Maria Elena Lagomasino. “This ranking is a reflection of our dedication to helping clients manage their wealth by sitting on their side of the table. Our entire service model is based on providing clients with transparency, knowledge and control over their wealth. Too often, financial advisors are focused on selling products and services instead of helping them choose the wealth management products or services that are right for them, at the right price,” adds Lagomasino.
As part of their mission to provide families with control, knowledge and resources to manage their wealth, WE Family Offices has released a series of articles titled “Cut Through The Clutter” to help investors and families understand the difference between advisors. These papers provide investors with information to help them understand the role or roles their advisor plays and determine if they are getting unbiased advice. The series is designed to answer the question: Does your advisor have incentives to provide you with unbiased advice, or incentives to sell you products and services?
