Kris is happy to be included in this year’s list, “Making it on the Forbes list for 2020 is significant because we pride ourselves on providing clients with a high-quality experience. When an independent research team recognizes this, it confirms not only to me, but to the entire team that we are realizing our mission of helping people to live more and worry less.”

The 2020 ranking of the Forbes’ Best-in-State Wealth Advisors1 list was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due-diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively and on a ranking algorithm that includes client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations, and quantitative criteria (including assets under management and revenue generated for their firms). Overall, 32,000 advisors were considered, and 4,000 (12.5 percent of candidates) were recognized. The full methodology2 that Forbes developed in partnership with SHOOK Research is available here.
