Barron’s awarded the 2019 #4 and 2018 #3 Top RIA Firms ranking to Mariner, LLC d/b/a Mariner Wealth Advisors based on data compiled for Mariner Wealth Advisors and the 2017 #2 and 2016 #1 rankings to Mariner Holdings based upon data compiled for Mariner Holdings’ registered investment adviser subsidiaries. Barron's has transitioned the name of the 2016 inaugural award of Top Independent Advisory Firms to the Top RIA Firms. The number of firms included in the rankings were: 20 (2016), 30 (2017), 40 (2018) and 50 (2019). Barron’s publishes these lists based upon a number of criteria and the firms’ filings with the SEC were used to cross-check the data provided to Barron’s. The listing includes the firms’ numbers of clients, employees, advisors, offices and state locations. The award is not indicative of future performance and there is no guarantee of future investment success. Registration of an investment advisor does not imply a certain level of training or skill.

Barron’s publishes these lists based upon a number of criteria and the firms’ filings with the SEC were used to cross-check the data provided to Barron’s. The listing includes the firms’ numbers of clients, employees, advisors, offices and state locations. The award is not indicative of future performance and there is no guarantee of future investment success. Barron’s also publishes four financial advisor rankings each year: The Top 100, The Top 100 Women, The Top 100 Independents and The Top 1,000, in which advisors are ranked on a state-by-state basis. The rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It 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. For additional information visit www.barrons.com

Financial Times
300 Top Registered Investment Advisers 2018 – Mariner Wealth Advisors-Cincinnati and Mariner Wealth Advisors-Overland Park. 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers 2016 – RiverPoint Capital Management (currently Mariner Wealth Advisors-Cincinnati) and Mariner Wealth Advisors-Oklahoma. To ensure a list of established companies with deep, institutional expertise, Financial Times examined the database of RIAs registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and selected those that reported to the SEC that they had $300m or more in assets under management (AUM). The Financial Times’ methodology is quantifiable and objective. The RIAs had no subjective input. The FT invited qualifying RIA companies — more than 1,500 — to complete a lengthy application that provided more information. This was added to their own research into firm practices, including data from regulatory filings. Some 520 RIA companies applied and 300 made the final list. The formula the FT uses to grade advisers is based on six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each adviser. Areas of consideration include adviser AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record, and online accessibility. Assets under management and asset growth, combined, comprised roughly 80 to 85 per cent of each adviser’s score. Additionally, the FT caps the number of companies from any one state. The cap is roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the US. The research was conducted on behalf of the Financial Times by Ignites Distribution Research, a Financial Times sister publication. For additional information visit www.ft.com
