2The number of advisors for each state is based on the total population of the state, so larger states have larger listings. The rankings reflect assets under management, revenues, quality of the advisors' practices and other factors. Total assets are all assets overseen by the advisor’s team, including some that are held at other institutions. Assets managed for institutions are given less weight in the scoring. Portfolio performance is not a criterion because most advisors do not have audited track records. Criteria was based on more than 3000 filtered nominations from more than 100 investment, insurance, banking and other related independent financial service firms.

3The rankings are based on data provided by thousands of advisors and financial services firms.  Factors included in the rankings were assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work.  Investment performance isn't an explicit component.
