To be named to the Barron’s Top 1200 Financial Advisors, researched and managed by Barron’s, a wealth manager must meet objective eligibility and evaluation criteria, including submitting data to a survey about their practice, which Barron’s verifies with regulatory databases. The data is then applied to a ranking formula with three major categories of calculations: assets, revenue and quality of practice. About 6,000 wealth managers nationwide were considered for the award, and 1,200 were selected. Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Top 1,200 award winners. The Top 1,200 award is not indicative of the wealth manager’s future performance.
