*As of December 31, 2022.
Barron’s “Top 100 Independent Advisors”: The ranking is 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. KAR has not paid a fee to participate in the rankings, but has paid fees for a license to access reprints and distribute links to the results of the rankings via email, social media, and KAR’s website for a prescribed period of time.

†Forbes’ Top RIA Firms 2022 and Forbes’ 2022 Best-In-State Wealth Advisors: Forbes includes wirehouses along with RIAs in their ranking. The Forbes rankings, developed by SHOOK Research, are based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, gained through telephone, virtual and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that 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. Each variable is graded and represents a certain value for each measured component. The algorithm measures thousands of advisors against each other. 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. KAR has not paid a fee to participate in the rankings but has paid fees for a license to reprint and distribute the results of the rankings.
