Can I invite a fellow advisor?
Are your rankings open to everyone?
Yes, but we have minimum requirements for each list. Refer to the relevant ranking for specific requirements.
Is there an application fee?
Barron’s rankings are an ad-supported editorial product for our readers. There is no fee for participation.
What is the deadline for applying to the rankings?
We publish rankings throughout the year. Refer to the relevant ranking for specific dates.
How do you determine the final list of top advisors?
Advisors complete a 102-question survey which is vetted by their compliance department. That data is entered into a ranking formula that is refined year over year to improve its fairness and accuracy. For more information on our mythology, visit here.
Can I still be ranked if I have a U4 violation?
Yes. We consider the number and severity of any violations against the length of your career and adjust scoring accordingly.
If I attend Barron’s Advisor events, will it help me make the list?
Conference attendance/participation has no bearing on the rankings. Our rankings are based on verified data. There is no subjective ranking criteria.
Why do the rankings publish team assets?
These are individual advisor rankings, not team; although we publish the team assets as, from our readers’ perspective, this is a better gauge of the ranked advisors’ practices.
Are the rankings just a list of advisors with big AUMs?
The ranking is not a descending asset/revenue list. Instead we use a complex formula with various weightings of all the data (excluding the obvious name, firm, etc. questions) that is submitted by each advisor.
