*About Barron’s. Barron’s is America’s premier financial magazine. Published by Dow Jones & Company, it reaches an influential audience of senior decision makers, institutional investors, individual investors and financial professionals. The premier financial publication is known for moving the market in stocks with well-researched, well-argued stories and opinions.
**Barron’s Top Advisors. Barron’s publishes four financial advisor rankings each year: The Top 100, The Top 100 Women, The Top 100 Independents and The Top 1,200, 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.
***Ranking Methodology. 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.
