Third-party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation.
The Royal Alliance Top 50 Award is based upon sales generated by advisors and is not based upon performance or returns experienced by any client or opinions of the advisor’s clients or former clients.
Forbes Best in State Wealth Advisor Award was determined by interviews with advisors with more than seven years total experience who were nominated by their firm, along with compliance records, assets under management and other data.
