* Barron’s annual ranking of the nation’s "Top 1,000 Financial Advisors" (changed to 1200 Advisors in 2014). Winner's Circle, a Barron’s research organization, produced the rankings based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. Among the factors considered for the rankings are assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, quality of practice, and philanthropic work. Investment performance is not an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment picking abilities. The ranking may not be representative of any one client’s experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. Barron’s is not affiliated with Raymond James. Rankings are comprised of wirehouses, independent and RIA advisors; individual advisors not required to be individually registered in FINRA.
