Forbes' criteria (America’s Top-500 Next Generation Wealth Advisors):
The Forbes ranking of America’s Top-500 Next Generation Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of individuals with a minimum of four years of relevant experience and acceptable compliance records. Nominations were accepted from three types of practitioners: advisors who have built and lead their own teams; advisors who have joined teams of specialists, and are acting in an advisor-type role - planners, analysts, relationship managers, etc.; and those who are hybrids of these two models. The qualitative due diligence examines best practices - client-service models, investing process, business types, leveraging a team and firm resources, etc. This information is learned through telephone and in-person interviews. Also built into the model: experience levels, credentials and more. Quantitatively, weighed factors include revenue produced, assets under management, compliance records and industry experience.
