Our office received good news recently that I thought you would like to hear about.
Billy Peterson has been named in the 2019 edition of the Forbes list of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors and is number 13 in the state of Utah! The list recognizes top financial advisors at banks, brokerages, custodians, insurance companies, clearing houses and others from across the U.S.
This year’s Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list spotlights over 2,000 top-performing advisors across the country who were nominated by their firms – and then researched, interviewed and assigned a ranking within their respective states.
Unlike other advisor rankings, SHOOK is not a “robo-ranker” – numbers such as production and assets don’t tell the whole story, especially when much of the data is self-reported. SHOOK Research creates rankings of role models – advisors that are leading the way in offering best practices and providing a high-quality experience for clients. A focus on both quantitative and qualitative factors, including telephone and in-person meetings, is imperative.
This achievement would not have been possible without your continued trust and support. Milestones like this serve to reinforce Billy and Shaun’s belief that putting their clients – you – first is still the best way to do business.
The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of 7 years of experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, AUM, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Out of 29,334 advisors nominated by their firms, 3,477 received the award. This ranking is not indicative of advisor’s future performance, is not an endorsement, and may not be representative of individual clients’ experience. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors or RIA firms pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Raymond James is not affiliated with Forbes or Shook Research, LLC.

About Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth AdvisorsSource: Forbes.com (Feb. 2019). Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisors ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively, a major component of a ranking algorithm that includes: client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client’s experience. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receives compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking. For more information: www.SHOOKresearch.com.
