The Financial Times FT 401 Top Retirement Advisors awards 401 of the 550 advisor applicants as a Top Retirement Advisor. The Financial Times asked large U.S. brokerages, independent advisors and other wealth managers to identify qualified Direct Contribution (DC) plan advisor applicants. The Financial Times partnered with Broadridge Financial Solutions who provided data from its proprietary database to help identify advisors that specialize in serving DC plans, including 401k, pensions and other DC accounts. Advisor applicants were required to have 20% or more of their total client assets in DC plans. Qualifying advisors filled out an online application and questionnaire that gave The Financial Times more information about their practices. The Financial Times supplemented that information with their own research on the candidates, including data from regulatory filings. The Financial Times then generated an internal score for each applicant based on seven broad factors: DC plan assets under management, DC plan AUM growth rate, DC plan growth rate, experience advising DC plans, the advisor’s industry certifications (i.e. CFP), compliance record, degree to which advisor specializes in the DC business, and estimated participation rate at client DC plans. Roughly 80 to 85 percent of the final score is based on DC plan AUM and growth in the DC plan business (measured by plan numbers and plan assets). Additionally, to provide a diversity of advisors, The Financial Times placed a cap on the number of advisors from any one state roughly correlated to the distribution of millionaires across the U.S. Neither the firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 401 list. Inclusion on the FT 401 Top Retirement Advisor list is not guaranteed by future investment success.
