Barron’s “Top 100 RIA Firms” ranking is based upon a wide range of quantitative and qualitative criteria: regulatory records, client retention reports, assets overseen by the Firm, revenue generated by the Firm, level of technology spending, number of clients, size of the staff, diversity across the staff, placement of a succession plan, and more. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience because it reflects a sample of all of the experiences of the Firm’s clients.
