D Magazine’s 2017 Best Financial Planners & Top Wealth Managers

D MagazineWe are proud to have been named in D Magazine’s 2017 list of “Top Wealth Managers in Dallas” as well as have 6 team members be selected by peers for D Magazine’s “Best Financial Planners in Dallas” list.  The financial advisors are Jaime Boyles, CFP®, Richie Lee, CFA, CFP®, Nic Gibson, CFP®, Dana Pingenot, CFP®, CLU, CAP®, Dusty Wallace, CFP®, J.D. and Christie Williams, CFP®.  A copy of the full list can be seen in the November issue of D Magazine. 

To be considered for the “Top Wealth Manager list, D Magazine began by asking every wealth management firm in the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Financial Planning Association, Chartered Financial Analyst Institute, and the Investment Management Consultants Association about their practice.  The final list was selected based on these criteria: top firms or teams must have total assets under management for individual clients of at least $50 million; average assets under management per client of at least $750,000; a 93 percent client retention rate over the last two years; no current disciplinary action; and been in existence for at least five years. They must also hold themselves out as fiduciaries for their clients and provide them with the required DOL fiduciary disclosure. A panel of esteemed local wealth managers reviewed the final list. All numbers were current as of June 12, 2017. Out of the 50 that applied, 25 firms and teams were selected.

For the “Best Financial Planner” list, D Magazine asked Certified Financial Planner™ professionals in the Dallas-Fort Worth Financial Planning Association to cast an online nomination ballot.  Financial Planners that received votes from outside of their own firm were counted more than those from within a nominee’s firm.  Self-nominations were not considered.  Additionally, a local panel of financial planners reviewed the list and only Certified Financial Planner™ were considered.
