2018 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisors: Financial Times – Southern CA Region
Del Mar, CA - June, 2018
Weatherly Asset Management, L.P. was included in the 2018 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers list. This list was published in print and online on FT.com, on June 28, 2018. View the list here.
The selection process for the Financial Times 300 (“FT 300”) is based on the largest independent Registered Investment Advisers across the United States that meet the below criteria:
To qualify as a candidate for the FT 300, an RIA firm must:
Manage at least $300 million in assets under management (as of 12/31/17)
Have no more than 75% of its practice’s assets be institutional
Be independent (it cannot be the RIA arm of a broker-dealer, for example)
Financial Times invited more than 2000 SEC registered RIA companies across the US who reported $300mm or more in AUM to participate in the review process. About 760 RIAs applied, and 300 made the final list.
Qualified RIAs were required to fill out an online application, and were evaluated on several factors including AUM, AUM growth rate, years the firm has been in existence, industry certifications of staff, SEC compliance report, online accessibility and other factors such that the final list should include a diverse range of practice types. AUM comprised roughly 70 to 75 per cent of each adviser’s score, while asset growth accounted for an additional 15 to 20 percent.
Additionally, FT capped the number of companies from any one state. The cap was roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the US. The research was conducted on behalf of the Financial Times by Ignites Research, a Financial Times sister publication.
The 300 firms were listed by state and alphabetically by business name. Weatherly paid Financial Times for custom hard copy reprints and digital access after the list was published. Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list.
No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Inclusion on this list is not representative of any one client’s experience and is not indicative of Weatherly’s future performance. Weatherly is not aware of any facts that would call into question the validity of the list or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.
