Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisors list is comprised of over 2,000 financial advisors from across the country who were selected from over 21,000 nominations.

Neither Bernicke Wealth Management nor its employees pay a fee in exchange for these ratings. Investment performance is not a criterion.

Advisors are ranked strictly by assets under management, though 60 percent of those assets must belong to retail, as opposed to institutional clients. If the advisor is a member of a team, he must be the founder or leader of that team. Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors do not pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of America’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors. The overall evaluation score of the Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors reflects an average of all respondents and may not be representative of any one client’s evaluation. America’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors List is not indicative of the advisor’s future performance. Working with one of America’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors or any financial advisor is no guarantee as to the future investment success nor is there any guarantee that the selected advisors will be awarded this accomplishment in the future. Thousands of advisors, broker/dealers, and PR agencies ted data forms. Registered Rep Magazine created and conducted the survey.
