  • *The Barron’s “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” ranking considered advisors with a minimum of seven years financial services experience and have been employed at their current firm for at least one year. This is a list of the top advisors in each state, with the number of ranking spots determined by each state’s population and wealth. Other quantitative and qualitative measures include assets under management, revenues generated by advisors for their firms, and the quality of the advisors’ practices, regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the advisors themselves. Nominations are limited to 34,500 with 1,200 receiving the ranking. Rankings and recognition from Barron’s are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a current or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance results, and such rankings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor.

    **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. Investment performance is not a criterion. Neither SHOOK Research nor Forbes receives compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience and is not indicative of the financial advisor’s future performance. Forbes is a registered trademark of Forbes, Inc.
