The Barron’s list, organized by state, is based on quantitative and qualitative data provided by more than 4,000 of the nation’s most accomplished advisors. Barron’s analysis uses a complex formula that contains 22 points of ranking, all with various weightings. The calculation considers factors such as 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.
