The Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers is an independent listing produced annually by the Financial Times (June 2019). The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIA firms, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflected each practice’s performance in six primary areas: assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, years in existence, credentials and online accessibility. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of the practice’s future performance. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.

Barron’s “Top Firms,” Barron’s bases its ratings on qualitative criteria: firms with a minimum of 7 years of financial services experience, acceptable compliance records, client retention reports, customer satisfaction, and more. Firms are quantitatively rated based on varying types of revenues and assets advised by the firm, with weightings associated for each. Because individual client portfolio performance varies and is typically unaudited, this rating focuses on customer satisfaction and quality of advice. The rating 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. The rating is not indicative of the past or future performance. Neither Private Advisor Group nor its Financial Advisors pay a fee to Barron’s in exchange for the rating.
