June 27, 2016 – Truepoint Wealth Counsel is pleased to announce it has 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.
“We are pleased to be named once again to the FT 300,” said CEO and Founder Michael J. Chasnoff. “This recognition reflects the confidence our clients have placed in our firm and the uniquely comprehensive service delivered by our integrated team of specialists and wealth advisors.”
This is the third consecutive year Truepoint has been named to the FT 300, following a string of recent national awards recognizing the wealth management firm. In January 2016, Financial Planning recognized Truepoint on its 2016 Top 150 Registered Investment Advisors List, and Truepoint was named to Barron’s Top 100 Independent Advisors for the fifth time in 2015.
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 invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). Applicants that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisors; online accessibility; and compliance records. Neither the 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 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C.
