Best-In-State: Advisors are selected for the Forbes rankings by SHOOK Research. Rankings for 2024 were published in April 2024 and were based on June 30th data, including 1- and 5-year periods. The rankings are based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of wealth advisors with a minimum of seven years of experience and weighing factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience, and best practices learned through telephone and in-person interviews. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and a lack of audited data. The ranking is not indicative of future performance, and there is no guarantee of future success. For additional information, visit
