“We are deeply proud of every advisor who received this year’s Barron’s Top 1200 by State accolade, which celebrates not only their highly successful wealth management businesses, but also their attentive client service and commitment to their wider communities, said Hightower Chairman and CEO Bob Oros. “Congratulations to all on this well-deserved honor.”  

Barron‘s 2022 Top Advisor Rankings by State are based on data provided by around 6,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. In compiling the rankings, the publication considers: 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. The rankings are meant as a starting point for clients looking for an advisor—a first-pass vetting that can help investors narrow a search.

Barron’s has honored Hightower advisors in a wide array of categories, including the Barron’s Top 100 Financial Advisors, Top 100 Independent Advisors, Top 100 Women Financial Advisors and Top 1200. Additionally, Forbes has named Hightower advisors to several of its best-of lists, including America’s Top Wealth Advisors, America’s Best Women Wealth Advisors Best-in-State List, the Top Next-Gen Wealth Advisors and Best-In-State Wealth Advisors. Hightower advisors have also been honored on Seramount’s 2021 ‘Top Wealth Advisor Moms’ List and InvestmentNews’ ’40 Under 40’.
