The 2020 Forbes ranking of Top 100 Women Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK™ Research, considers female advisors with seven years of experience, a minimum of one year experience at their current firm, over 50% of their revenue and production with individuals, an acceptable compliance record, and who have completed an online survey. The ranking is determined based on the quality of practice, including telephone and in-person interviews, a review of best practices, service and investing models, and compliance records, revenue trends and assets under management. Investment performance is not part of the criteria because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. This ranking surveyed approximately 9,654 female advisors, of which 9.65%, or 1,000 advisors, successfully ranked for this list. For additional information and methodology, please visit
