This accolade is presented for informational purposes only; no warranty is either expressed or implied by its presentation. The accolade may not be representative of actual or specific client experiences and should not be considered an endorsement. Wetherby Asset Management (Wetherby) acknowledges the rating reflects an average of all, or sample of all, of an advisor’s or the firm’s clients and thus may not be representative of any single client’s experience. Wetherby’s receipt of accolades should not be considered a guarantee of future performance results. While Wetherby did not pay a fee to participate in consideration of this accolade, Wetherby does pay Barron’s for subsequent enhanced advertising and promotion of the accolade.
The 1,200 Top Advisors by State list is produced annually by Barron’s. Advisors are considered for the ranking if they submit a questionnaire and have meet the following criteria: a minimum of $350 million in assets under management for California advisors, a clean compliance record (no criminal U4 issues), a minimum of seven years in the industry and at least one year with their current firm. Factors considered in the rankings include assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities. Over 4,000 advisors were considered for the award, 1,200 of which were selected, representing approximately 30%.
