Financial Times Disclosure

Financial Times (“FT”) examines the database of RIAs registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and selects those that reported to the SEC that they had $300MM or more in AUM. The RIAs have no subjective input. FT invites qualifying RIAs, more than 1,500, to complete a lengthy application that gives them more information. FT adds to this with their own research into the RIAs practices, including data from regulatory filings.

The formula that FT uses to grade advisers is based on six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each adviser. Areas of consideration include adviser AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record and online accessibility. AUM and asset growth, combined, comprise roughly 80-85% of each adviser’s score.

FT caps the number of companies from any one state. The cap is roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the US.
