Barron's 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 Top Advisors in America2
Forbes Best-In-State Advisors3
Rising Stars of Wealth Management4


Insurance products offered through third-party providers.

The rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation's most productive advisors. Factors included in the rankings: assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn't an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients' risk tolerance than by an advisor's investment-picking abilities.

The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.

Published in the August 2007 issue of Institutional Investor News. Named Tom Salvino. The 20 Rising Stars of Wealth Management were selected based on the following: they are 45 years old or younger, demonstrate impressive credentials and experience, and show a career consistency and commitment to the broader industry through trade groups and regulatory or other memberships revealing a dedication that could make them future leaders and trendsetters.
