To provide clients with the best possible support as they pursue their long- and short-term goals, Evan follows a disciplined process of assessing each client’s financial picture, determining their risk tolerance, and then building and executing an investment plan designed to align with their specific needs. As they move forward, he regularly monitors their plans and periodically meets with them to review their portfolios, assess their goals, and makes adjustments whenever necessary to help ensure they remain on track to achieving their objectives.

*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: 2018 AUM was defined as the amount an advisor had as of Aug. 31, 2018. Likewise, for T-12 production, the 12-month period ending Aug. 31, 2018 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 an 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.
