About Barron’s Financial Adviser Rankings

Barron’s acquired The Winner’s Circle in September, 2008, and employs two full-time researchers to gather the data behind four adviser rankings per year: Top 100 Advisers, Top 100 Women Advisers, Top 100 Independent Advisers and Top 1,000 Advisers (a state-by-state ranking).

The rankings are the foundation of Barron’s financial-adviser business, which promotes financial adviser best practices through conferences and a subscription-only Web site. Barron’s financial-adviser business is a year-round, industry-wide endeavor. Barron’s is committed to tracking the progress of America’s best advisers and showcasing their best practices in a way that helps raise standards in the industry.
