Forbes | SHOOK

This ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings to evaluate each advisor qualitatively, a major component of a ranking algorithm that includes client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, and firm nominations; as well as a quantitative review that includes assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC and not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client’s experience. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receive compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking. For more information:

Best and Brightest 2023

Great organizations create cultures where team members are inspired and have the opportunity to contribute their talents towards the overall vision of the organization. During the selection process, the Best and Brightest team works with nominees to identify their strengths and opportunities through an in-depth evaluation.

Participants’ practices are bench-marked against other participants in their region and across the nation. This multifaceted approach creates a rich assessment that provides opportunities for analysis reports, competitive comparison and educational opportunties leading towards tangible and direct ROI. Learn more about participating in the Best and Brightest programs.

Scoring and Analysis Fees

Each application is scrutinized, scored and feedback is shared with both winning companies and those that did not make the winners list. Company data is analyzed as well as each employee survey by participating companies. To keep the integrity of the program, a third party partner is used to score each application. As a service organization, it is expensive to process hundreds of companies and their respective employee surveys without a fee applied. All nominated companies that pay this fee receive a complimentary overall assessment report that contains feedback and benchmark scoring data. There are also options to purchase in-depth comprehensive reports with detailed data to help participants and their executives improve their overall operations. As a service organization, these comprehensive reports are significantly less expensive than private firms that offer survey services.
