Annual listings of the nation’s top 1200 advisors for 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 & 2015 and top 1000 advisors for 2013 and 2012 by Barron’s, a financial weekly newspaper published by Dow Jones & Company since 1921:

The Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors ranking algorithm is based on industry experience, interviews, compliance records, assets under management, revenue and other criteria by SHOOK Research, LLC, which does not receive compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking. Investment performance is not a criterion.
2The Financial Times 401 rankings are based on data provided by financial advisors and financial services firms. The applicants were then graded on seven criteria: DC assets under management (AUM); DC AUM growth rate; specialization in DC plans; years of experience; advanced industry credentials; compliance record and DC plan participation rate. Investment performance is not an explicit component.
3The Barron’s rankings are based on assets under management, revenue generated for the advisors’ firms, and the quality of the advisors’ practices. Investment performance isn’t an explicit factor because clients have varied goals and risk tolerances.

4The Northern Virginia Magazine's 2020 Top Financial Professionals is a peer-nominated listing. Those professionals who received the most votes by their peers made it to the list. There is no cost for advisors to participate. The rating is not representative of any one client's experience. Investment performance is not an explicit component.
