Waltham, MA, and San Diego – June 22, 2017 – Sensible Financial Planning and Management announced today it has been named to the 2017 edition of the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers. The list recognizes top independent Registered Investment Advisors (RIA) firms from across the U.S.
This is the fourth annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the Financial Times that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry.
“The FT 300 list is a useful tool for investors looking to connect with a credible and experienced advisor,” said Sensible Financial founder Rick Miller. “The Financial Times team weighs a number of factors in assembling the list, including asset growth, experience, certifications, and SEC compliance.” The FT invited more than 1500 RIA companies with more than $300 million in assets under management (AUM) to complete a lengthy application. This information was combined with the FT’s own research into the companies’ practices, including data from regulatory filings. Applicants were graded on six factors: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records.
According to the Financial Times, “The final FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the ‘average’ practice in this year’s list has been in existence for 24 years and manages $2.7 billion in assets.” The FT 300 Top RIAs hail from 37 states and Washington, D.C.
