Investment performance is not an explicit criterion because performance is often a function of each client’s appetite for risk. In evaluating advisors, they examine regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the advisors. There is no fee to participate. Additional details regarding the criteria and process utilized in formulating these rankings can be found by at http://www.barrons-conferences.com/advisor-rankings.html
