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.
