6/24/15 Morristown, NJ – Private Advisor Group, LPL Financial’s largest branch office by revenues* and a $6B RIA, was named one of the Financial Times top 300 Registered Investment Advisors.
“We are excited to be part of this elite group of RIAs and attribute our success to all of our advisors who align themselves with us,” said Patrick Sullivan, Managing Director of Private Advisor Group. “This honor is really for our entire network of advisors, and we could not be prouder.”
This is the second annual FT 300 list, produced independently by Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. “More than 2,000 elite RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). The 630 RIA firms that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM, AUM growth rate, years in existence, advanced industry credentials, online accessibility and compliance records,” said a spokesperson for Financial Times.
The “average” FT 300 firm has been in existence for 23 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C., and, on average, saw their total AUM rise by 18% in 2014.
