RS Crum Named to 2016 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers
June 16, 2016 – RS Crum is pleased to announce it has again been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers for 2016. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.
This is the third annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times Ltd. in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were considered, based on their assets under management (AUM). Candidates were graded on six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisors; online accessibility; and compliance records.
The “average” FT 300 firm has been in existence for 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C.
The FT 300 is one in series of rankings of top advisers the FT produces in partnership with Ignites Research, including the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers) and the FT 400 (financial advisers from traditional broker-dealer firms). Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.
Disclosure – The 2016 Financial Times Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times (June, 2016).
