[1] Barrons 2020 Top 100 Women Financial Advisors is based on assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work.

[2] 2019 Barrons Hall of Fame – Advisors appearing in the rankings have answered 100-plus questions about their practices in our annual survey. The questionnaire addresses a wide range of data points, including the assets the advisors oversee, the revenue they collect on those assets, the industry designations they possess, their regulatory records, the length of time they’ve been in the industry, their charitable and philanthropic work, the investment vehicles they use to allocate assets, the sizes and shapes of their teams, and more.

The rankings specifically do not factor in investment performance, as returns are tied inextricably to the risk tolerances of individual clients; to reward outsize returns would be to encourage advisors to chase them. Instead, Barron’s use assets and revenue as their primary quantitative measures, as clients tend to express their satisfaction by voting with their assets and their fees.

[3] Forbes – is based on an algorithm of: qualitative data, such as telephone and in-person interviews, a review of best practices, service and investing models, and compliance records; as well as quantitative data, like revenue trends and assets under management. All advisors have a minimum of seven years’ experience. 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.

[5] InvestmentNews Women to Watch – Each of the advisors and executives who made the 5th annual InvestmentNews Women to Watch list were chosen from a rigorous selection process designed to identify women who possess leadership skills, the ability to effect change in the industry, a willingness to share their expertise with other women and are committed to giving back to the community.
