Earlier this year, Barron’s featured HighTower advisors on its Top 1200 Advisors by State, Top 100 Financial Advisors, and Top 100 Women Advisors lists. HighTower advisors also appeared on the Financial Times’  2016 FT 300 ranking of the top RIAs in the U.S. Nearly 40% of all HighTower practices have been named to Barron’s rankings.

HighTower recently released the results of its first-ever benchmarking study, which examined quantitative practice characteristics and key metrics, including profitability, productivity and team composition to reveal differences between HighTower advisors overall, HighTower’s top performers, and independent RIAs. The study revealed that HighTower practices are larger, more productive and profitable, and have lower cost structures than industry averages.

“Our recent benchmarking study illustrates the competitive advantages that the HighTower platform, brand and culture deliver to advisors,” added Mr. Weissbluth.
