PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwired - Aug 24, 2015) -  McAdam, the Philadelphia-headquartered independent financial planning firm with nearly 200 advisors, announced today that its year-to-date relative investment performance as of June 30, 2015 ranks it in the top 4 percent of financial advisory firms tracked by Orion Advisor Services. The Orion ranking includes more than 400 independent financial advisory firms from across the country.

"We believe this ranking is a reflection of the efforts of our investment team and their ability to identify and implement strategies that deliver positive return for our clients," said Michael McAdam, CEO of McAdam. "We are proud of our ranking, but even more proud of the financial peace of mind that we seek to provide for our clients."

In addition to ranking in the top 4 percent, in relative investment performance, the firm's Investment Platform has been successful in a number of other key areas throughout 2015. The firm has experienced a 75 percent increase in new accounts and a 63 percent increase in assets under management (AUM) since the beginning of the year.

"We wouldn't be where we are without the efforts of our hundreds of advisors across the country," said McAdam. "We believe their drive to provide high-quality service to our clients using our Advanced Advisory Model™ is what has allowed us to achieve such rapid growth." 

McAdam's growth has come on the heels of the firm launching its fee-only registered investment advisor entity on October 3, 2014.
