Financial Times Top 300 U.S. Registered Investment Advisers
The methodology for the Financial Times Top 300 U.S. Registered Investment Advisers rankings for 2019 and 2020 is as follows: Financial Times (“FT”) considers the FT 300 as an elite group, not a competitive ranking of one to 300. It is compiled by examining the database of RIA’s registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and select those with more than $300MM in assets under management (AUM). The Financial Times and Ignites Research, the FT’s sister company, invited qualifying RIA companies (more than 2,000) to complete a lengthy application that gives FT additional information on the RIA firms. The formula that FT uses to grade advisers is based on six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each adviser. Areas of consideration include AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record and online accessibility.
