The Forbes Next-Gen Wealth Advisors Best-In-State rankings, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criterion, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered are under 40, have a minimum of four years' experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass the highest standards of best practices. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. The Research Summary (as of August 2023) included: 42,108 nominations for all rankings, based on thresholds, 22,874 invited to complete online survey, 17,996 telephone interviews, 3,859 in-person interviews at advisors’ location, 1,487 virtual interviews and 3,738 individuals considered and 1,464 individuals won the Next-Gen ranking. This ranking is based upon the period from 3/31/22 to 3/31/23 and was released on 8/8/23. This ranking is not indicative of an advisor’s future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients’ experience. For more information go toÐ
