The Forbes ranking of America’s Top RIA Firms is produced annually (October 2023). The ranking is developed by SHOOK Research and is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone, virtual and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. The algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.

Barron’s Top 100 RIA Firms is an independent listing produced annually by Barron’s (September 2023). The annual ranking of independent advisory companies is based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria, including the assets a firm manages and the revenue those assets generate, its regulatory record, staffing levels and diversity, technology spending, and succession planning. This ranking does not guarantee any potential investment outcomes, nor does it rank advisors based on investment performance. There is no fee for participation. However, IEQ does pay a $15,000 annual membership for the right to be featured in Barron’s magazine itself (outside of the ranking) and for using Barron’s logo in our marketing pieces.
