Research Declaration by Conquest Press for the  “America’s Top Financial Advisors” book

“Each of the financial advisors chosen for this book were thoroughly reviewed. Each endured an extensive personal interview and rigorous regulatory background check prior to being awarded acceptance into this book. 

The proprietary screening process we used to rank and rate Financial Advisors consisted of seven components:

1. Asset under management
2. Number of clients served
3. Educational background and professional designations held
4. Client impact – how the financial advisor made a positive difference for their clients
5. Giving back – charitable and philanthropic endeavors
6. A regulatory background check
7. An extensive personal interview

For the 2012 book only 100 advisors were selected. For the 2013 and 2014 books only 50 advisors were selected.
