1 The Forbes ranking of America’s Top Wealth Advisors algorithm is based on quality of practice, including: telephone and in-person interviews, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and Advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC, which does not receive compensation from the Advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking.
The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, LLC, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due-diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those Advisors who are considered have a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those who encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. Awards or rankings are not indicative of future success or results.
