*“RIA,” as used in the Financial Times article, is an abbreviation for Registered Investment Advisor and is not a designation. Registration as an investment adviser does not constitute an endorsement of the firm by securities regulators nor does it indicate that the adviser has attained a particular level of skill or ability.

FT 300 Disclosure: The Financial Times Top 300 Registered Investment Advisors is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times (June, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018). The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIA firms, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. As identified by the FT, the listing reflected each practice’s performance in six primary areas, including assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, years in existence, credentials and accessibility. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300. Third-party rankings from Financial Times and other publications are no guarantee of future investment success. Working with a highly ranked adviser does not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance results. These rankings should not be construed as an endorsement of the adviser by any client.
