The Forbes Top Women Wealth Advisors Best-In-State ranking by SHOOK Research is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, gained through due diligence interviews and quantitative data. Those advisors who are considered 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 in their approach to working with clients. 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.
Third party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client will experience a certain level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the adviser nor are they representative of client evaluations. Generally, ratings, rankings, and recognition are based on information submitted by the adviser.
