Barron’s – Top 100 Women Financial Advisors – Faith Read Xenos 2019: #68 2018: #64 2017: #54 2016: #86 2015: #100 2014: #81 2013: #73 2012: #86 2011: #85. Rankings by state are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, crosschecks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisors is proprietary and has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of clients. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record. The award is not indicative of future performance and there is no guarantee of future investment success.

Forbes’ 2020 Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list spotlights more than 4,000 top advisors across the country who were nominated by their firms. The ranking is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data, in combination with telephone and in-person meetings from a pool of nearly 32,000 nominated advisors. Those advisors selected have a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. Advisors do not pay a fee for placement on the list, which is independently determined by Shook Research. For additional information, visit Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors Methodology 2020.
