There is no cost for advisors to participate. The rating is not representative of any on client’s experience and is not indicative of past or future investment performance.

FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction Wealth Managers – The FIVE STAR Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction Wealth Managers. The overall evaluation score of a wealth manager reflects an average of all respondents and may not be representative of any one client’s evaluation. The FIVE STAR Award is not indicative of the wealth manager’s future performance. Wealth managers may or may not use discretion in their practice and therefore may not manage their client’s assets. The inclusion of a wealth manager on the FIVE STAR Wealth Manager list should not be construed as an endorsement of the wealth manager by Crescendo Business Services or Charlotte magazine. Working with a FIVE STAR Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Crescendo in the future. The research process for the FIVE STAR: Best in Client Satisfaction Wealth Manager Program, managed by Quantitative Market Intelligence (QMI), incorporates a statistically valid sample in order to identify the wealth managers in the local market that score highest in client satisfaction. QMI does not include wealth managers on the list unless their score is statistically valid. At least fifty percent of the wealth managers in the market have a statistically valid score.

The 2007 Charlotte Business Journal’s ranking of wealth advisers in the region is the result of a partnership with The Winner’s Circle and its founder, R.J. Shook. The Winner’s Circle team received more than 7,000 nominations of high-performing financial advisers nationwide from securities firms, banks, independent firms and others. Of the nominees from the Charlotte region, The Winner’s Circle team analyzed quantitative and qualitative criteria, including assets managed, revenue, industry experience, compliance history and discussions with management. Client portfolio performance was not a criteria. From this data and in-person interviews with the nominees, The Winner’s Circle selected 20 top wealth managers from the Charlotte region. Profiles of the advisers ranked in the top five are in this section. The Winner’s Circle, which has published similar lists in Barron’s, is an advocacy organization independent of the firms in the rankings in this project. The Florida-based group does not receive compensation from the more than 100 participating firms or their affiliates, financial advisers or the media for the rankings.
