June 16, 2016 – Empirical Wealth Management is pleased to announce it has been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers, as of June 16, 2016. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.
“We are honored to be recognized by Financial Times,” said Kenneth R. Smith, CEO of Empirical Wealth Management. “This recognition is testament to the strength of the Empirical team and our commitment to each of our clients as we strive to provide the best of knowledge, expertise and execution in helping to build confidence in their lives.”
The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C. More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). The “average” FT 300 firm has been in existence for 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. Applicants that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisors; online accessibility; and compliance records. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.
