The list ranks the country's rising advisors selected based on several factors including industry experience, compliance records and assets under management.
"We are thrilled to have five of our next-gen advisors recognized as top wealth advisors," said Ryan DeVore, William Blair's global head of private wealth management. "These dedicated professionals represent the future of the wealth management industry and are helping to continue William Blair's 85-year history of serving clients."
Brown, Chenevey, Dreifuss, Feichter, Sims and their team members serve individuals, families, organizations and foundations to help them achieve their investment goals, strengthen family legacies, and endow their clients' charitable activities. The five advisors have an average tenure of 13 years in financial services and 9 years at William Blair.
William Blair has expanded its wealth management group in recent years, adding six offices across the country outside of Chicago headquarters. Brown, Dreifuss, Feichter and Sims are based in Chicago and Chenevey is based in Atlanta.
