To compile the list, multiple variables were combined into one composite score.  The six categories used are: (1) assets under management; (2) trailing-12 month production; (3) percentage increase in AUM from the previous year; (4) percentage increase in T-12 production;  (5) amount of fee business; and (6) the ratio of  production-per-AUM. (Note: 2016 AUM was defined as the amount an advisor had as of Aug. 31, 2017. Likewise, for T-12 production, the 12-month period ending Aug. 31, 2017 was used.)  The nominees were ranked by each of the six categories and then six different scores were calculated based on where they ranked.  Those six scores were used to compile the final list. The ranking may not be representative of any one client's experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of advisor's future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. BIC is not affiliated with Raymond James.
