American’s Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors (2017)

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors (2017) was conducted by SHOOK Research.  SHOOK Research considered advisors born in 1980 or later with a minimum 4 years relevant experience. Advisors included in the rankings have: built their own practices and lead their teams; joined teams and are viewed as future leadership; or a combination of both.  The ranking algorithm is based on qualitative measures derived from telephone and in-person interviews and surveys, including, among other things: service models, investing process, client retention, experience levels, review of compliance records, firm nominations, etc. Additional quantitative criteria, such as assets under management and revenue generated for their firms was also included. Investment performance is not a criteria because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC. Neither SHOOK nor Forbes received compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking. For more information on the ranking methodology, please see https://www.forbes.com/sites/rjshook/2017/07/25/methodology-forbes-top-500-top-next-generation-wealth-advisors/#5ef98e5c3671. Investors should not assume that the ranking is indicative of an advisor’s future performance. Over 19,500 nominations were received by Forbes, 2,356 individuals were considered for Next-Generation Wealth Advisor ranking and 500 individuals received a ranking.

America’s Top Wealth Advisors

Source: Forbes Magazine and Forbes Online (August 2016). The ranking of America’s Top Wealth Advisors, developed by Forbes’ partner SHOOK Research, is based on a ranking algorithm that includes telephone and in-person interviews, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC. Neither SHOOK nor Forbes received compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking. Investors should not assume that the ranking is indicative of an advisor’s future performance.  4,000 individuals were invited to complete a survey for consideration in Forbes’ 2016 America’s Top Wealth Advisor rankings and 200 individuals received a ranking.

America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors

Barron’s magazine “America’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” rankings are based on quantitative and qualitative criteria data provided by over 4,000 advisors. This report lists the top advisors in each state, with the number of ranking spots determined by each state’s population and wealth. Factors included in the rankings: assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities. Robert Doyle was ranked #21 in 2017, #21 in 2016 and #27 in 2015 of the 84 Florida advisors receiving a ranking each year. The rating may not be representative of any one client’s experience and is not indicative of the financial advisors future performance.  Neither DWM nor Mr. Doyle paid a fee to Barron’s in exchange for the rating.
