Déjà vu one more time…

This is getting to be a habit.  Like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day[1], I keep waking up to what seems like the same situation, only different. There I was, happily preparing to tell you that the S&P 500 (and most of the other equity indices) just had the best...

Best in State Advisors

Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. View Patrice’s full Forbes profile here.
