This is the fourth 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 2,000 RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). The 725 RIA firms that applied were then graded based on six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials; online accessibility; and compliance records. Neither RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to the Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.
The “average” FT 300 firm has been in existence for 24 years and manages $2.7 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 37 states and Washington, D.C.
The FT 300 is one in a series of rankings of top advisers that the FT developed in partnership with Ignites Research: the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers); the FT 400 (financial advisers from traditional broker-dealer firms); and the FT 100 (women financial advisers).
In addition to the current FT 300 list, Keel Point was also named in the FT 300 in 2015.
