1 According to Barron’s, "The formula [used] to rank advisors has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of the advisor’s practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely by each client’s risk tolerance. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor's regulatory record." Only advisors who apply are ranked. "The Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors" was published Aug. 27, 2012; Aug. 28, 2010; and Aug. 31, 2009. Ric Edelman is Chairman and CEO of Edelman Financial Services, a Registered Investment Adviser, and CEO, President and a Director of The Edelman Financial Group.
