About the Rankings
Barron’s Top Advisors
Barron’s publishes four financial advisor rankings each year: The Top 100, The Top 100 Women, The Top 100 Independents and The Top 1,000, in which advisors are ranked on a state-by-state basis. Advisors are chosen based upon a proprietary methodology consisting of three major components: assets under management, revenue generated for their firms, quality of service and regulatory records. Investment performance is not an explicit factor, because audited performance records are not available. Total assets are all assets overseen by the advisor’s team, including some that are held at other institutions. The rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. No compensation was received from participating firms or advisors. This ranking is not indicative of the advisor’s future performance.
