InvestmentNews Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers

Listed on  February 28, 2024. To find and recognize the Best Places to Work for Financial Advisors, InvestmentNews and Best Companies Group first invited organizations to participate by filling out an employer form, which asked companies to explain their various offerings and practices. To be eligible, an organization must:
  1. be a registered investment adviser (RIA), affiliated with (but not an employee of) an independent broker dealer (IBD), or a hybrid/dually registered firm affiliated with an IBD and doing business through an RIA;
  2. be based in the US;
  3. have a minimum of 15 full- or part-time employees working in the US (all employees in the company should be included in the employee count, not just in the financial advising department); and
  4. be in business for a minimum of one year.

Next, employers completed an in-depth questionnaire and employees were given the opportunity to offer their honest feedback by taking part in a company-wide survey. Once both portions of the assessment were complete, the InvestmentNews team analyzed the data to determine if an organization had what it takes to be the “best.”

To ensure credibility, organizations having 15–24 employees must have an 80 percent or better response rate on the employee survey.

RIA Edge 100 List

February 29, 2024: This list was developed by Wealthmanagement.com's WMIQ research team in partnership with ISS MI using data from its Discovery Data MarketPro platform. Qualifying firms were limited to SEC-registered investment advisory firms that provide financial planning services, have high-net-worth individuals as more than half of their client base and manage at least $500 million in assets. Analyzing that subset of RIAs, WMIQ ranked firms by several other metrics, including AUM growth over both one- and five-year periods, the ratio of employees to total clients, the percentage of employees with the CFP certification and average client account size, among other factors.
