LEAWOOD, Kan., July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Financial Advisory Service, Inc., of Leawood, KS, is excited to announce for four consecutive years its inclusion on the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers list.  The list annually recognizes top independent RIA firms across the U.S.

The annual list is produced independently by the Financial Times (FT) in collaboration with Ignites Research, a sister publication that compiles business intelligence on the investment management industry.  More than 2,000 qualifying, pre-screened RIA firms reporting $300M or more assets under management (AUM) were given lengthy applications.  Research from these applications along with data from regulatory filings were reviewed. After due diligence FT selects only 300 Registered Investment Advisers for this prestigious list.

Six broad factors make up the formula FT uses for calculating an RIA’s score.  AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record and online accessibility are the areas numerically graded. The median company in the 2019 list managed $1.7B in assets.

FT is one of the premier financial publications and uses purely objective criteria for their selection as opposed to many lists of this kind which entail paying a fee or “advertising” for inclusion.
