Nominations are limited to 34,500 with 1,200 receiving the ranking.

**Forbes’ Best-In-State Wealth Advisors rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and are selected from a pool of nominations. For the year 2018, there were over 25,000 nominations, in 2019, there were over 30,000 nominations and in 2020, there were over 32,000 nominations. Advisors in the Best-In-State Wealth Advisors are judged on individual contribution, but total team assets are shown, which can include one or more additional advisors. Qualifying advisors met the following basic requirements: a minimum of seven years as an advisor, a minimum of one year at their current firm, recommended and nominated by their firm, completion of an online survey, over 50% of their revenue/production must be with individuals, and an acceptable compliance record. The ranking algorithm is based on qualitative measures derived from telephone and in-person interviews and surveys; service models, investing process, client retention, experience levels, review of compliance records, firm nominations, etc.; and quantitative criteria, such as assets under management and revenue generated for their firms.
