BIRMINGHAM, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RFG Advisory "RFG," an innovative and fast-growing platform for independent advisors, has earned dual recognition for the ThinkAdvisor LUMINARY Awards Class of 2021 in the category of Thought-Leadership & Education—RFG Advisory received the accolade for the firm and Chief Investment Officer Rick Wedell for Individuals – RIAs.
The inaugural awards program celebrates top advisors, industry executives, teams, RIAs, broker-dealers, asset/investment/portfolio managers, and other firms by showcasing their achievements in four key areas:
· Thought leadership
· Executive leadership
· Diversity & inclusion
"Receiving this kind of dual recognition from ThinkAdvisor is a big win in our book. RFG produced more content in 12 months than some firms make in 12 years," said Bobby White, Founder and CEO of RFG Advisory. "People are RFG's greatest asset, and we'll do whatever it takes to ensure our advisors are well-equipped, with every form of content and resource imaginable to succeed and be the outlier."
Winners were selected by a distinguished and diverse panel of judges from across the advice industry and by ThinkAdvisor's editorial team. Closing the 2021 program will be the inaugural ThinkAdvisor LUMINARIES Awards Dinner, which will take place on Tuesday, November 9, at the Mandarin Oriental In New York.
"Being named a ThinkAdvisor LUMINARY not one but two times is a high honor," said Shannon Spotswood, President of RFG Advisory. "These awards help to validate all the work we've put into the last year alone: articles, an ebook, a national roadshow, two podcasts, webinars, and over 60 videos on YouTube. As an innovator in the wealth management industry, we are grateful for this acknowledgment and passionately committed to going above and beyond to serve independent advisors everywhere."
