*The Financial Times FT 401 Top Retirement Advisers 2016 award had about 74.3% of the 540 advisor applicants being recognized as a Top Retirement Adviser. The FT asked large U.S. brokerages, independent advisors, and other wealth managers to identify qualified Direct Contribution (DC) plan advisor applicants. They partnered in research with Broadridge Financial Solutions who provided data from its proprietary databases that helped identify advisors who specialize in serving DC plans, including 401k, pensions and other DC accounts. Advisor applicants must have 20% or more of their total client assets in DC plans. Qualifying advisors filled out an online application and questionnaire that gave the FT more information about their practices. The FT augmented that information with their own research on the candidates, including data from regulatory filings. The FT 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 (CFP, etc.), 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 FT places a cap on the number of advisors from any one state that’s roughly correlated to the distribution of millionaires across the U.S.
