942024 – Barron’s Top 1200 Advisors
Carolyn Taylor was included in Barron’s 2024 Top 1200 Advisor Rankings by State list. The full list can be viewed on Barron’s website. View the list here: https://www.barrons.com/advisor/report/top-financial-advisors/1000?page=8&mod=faranking_subnav_top1200. The criteria for ranking reflects assets under management as of 09/30/2023, revenue that the advisors generate for their Firms, regulatory record, quality of the advisor’s practices, and philanthropic work. Investment performance is not an explicit criterion because the advisors’ clients pursue a wide range of goals. In many instances, the primary goal is asset preservation. The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the top-ranked advisor. Carolyn Taylor was nominated for inclusion in the list. Survey data was submitted by around 6,000 advisors, but only 1200 were published in the ranking. Barron’s uses a proprietary method to rank advisors based on the criteria above. Weatherly provides this data to Barron’s in the form of a survey response. Initial ranking is done by Barron’s; publicly available data is verified by Barron’s against SEC and FINRA reports. Barron’s then conducts the next level of ranking. Data that is not independently verified by Barron’s is then sent back to the Firm for verification. Barron’s then incorporates any required changes into the ranking and finalizes the list for editorial use and publishing. The Top 1,200 are drawn from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. This ranking is the largest and most comprehensive of the annual Barron’s advisor listings. It includes a cross section of private-wealth advisors, from independents who own and operate their own practices to advisors from the large Wall Street firms. This special report lists the top advisors in each state, with the number of ranking spots determined by each state’s population and wealth. Carolyn Taylor ranked 71st in the state of California. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list. At the time of this updated disclosure, Weatherly elected to pay Barron’s for a 2024 annual membership to Barron’s Advisor Marketing Program. Part of this online profile program allows for use of promotional materials associated with various Barron’s rankings, including the Top 1200. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

The InvestmentNews 2023 Women to Watch Awards celebrate excellence and the women who are making a difference in the financial services industry. This year’s Women to Watch Awards program featured a new independent judging panel and recognized both individuals (categories: allyship champion of the year, female trailblazer of the year, Alexandra Armstrong award for lifetime achievement in the financial services industry, portfolio management of the year, rising star advisor of the year), as well as organizations (categories: employer of choice, excellence in gender diversity and inclusion). Kelli’s awardee status was shared via an article in Investment News prior to the final stages of the awards program. The methodology used is outlined below. Methodology and the awards program process consisted of 5 stages: Stage 1 – Nominations – InvestmentNews celebrates achievements that measurably advance women in all aspects of the investment industry, at employers of all sizes. Professionals were invited to nominate themselves or third-party candidates and / or companies who exemplify these outstanding accomplishments through their leadership, passion, creativity, and willingness to help others along the way. Nominations were open from July 18 – August 18, 2023. There was no fee to submit a nomination and only the online nomination forms were accepted. Stage 2 – Research. The Women to Watch Summit and Awards team conducted research and drew on knowledge and information gained through InvestmentNews to support and supplement nominations received and to ensure that no one deserving of recognition was missed. “Excellence awardees” (shortlisted Finalists), in each category, were determined from both pools of information. Stage 3 – Excellence Awardees Once all nominations were considered and research was complete, Excellence Awardees (Finalists) were selected in each category and notified via e-mail or phone. All Excellence Awardees were invited to finalize their detailed nomination form (“submission”). These submissions were provided to the judging panel for voting, remained confidential, and not shared with any third parties other than the judges. Excellence awardees were officially announced in September 2023. Stage 4 – Judging All submissions from the Excellence Awardees were forwarded to the independent judging panel comprising mortgage and finance industry leaders and senior representatives. The panel assessed and voted for their winners in each category according to the relevant category criteria. Voting began in September-October 2023 and their judgment was impartial, balanced, incisive and fair. Any judge with a conflict of interest in a category excused themselves from judging that category. Stage 5 – Winners Using a simple points system to aggregate judges’ votes, the finalist with the top score in a category was named the winner. Winners were announced at the event on November 7, 2023. Employees of Weatherly nominated Kelli Burger, as well as 4 other team members for different individual award categories.

Investment performance is not an explicit criterion because the advisors’ clients pursue a wide range of goals. In many instances, the primary goal is asset preservation. The scoring system assigns a top score of 100 and rates the rest by comparing them with the top-ranked advisor. Carolyn was ranked 63rd. Carolyn Taylor was invited to participate in the nomination process via email solicitation from Barron’s, and nominated by colleagues for inclusion in the list. There are over 100 nominations, but only 100 published ranking spots. Barron’s uses a proprietary method to rank advisors based on the criteria above. Weatherly provides this data to Barron’s in the form of a survey response. Initial ranking is done by Barron’s; publicly available data is verified by Barron’s against SEC and FINRA reports. Barron’s then conducts the next level of ranking. Data that is not independently verified by Barron’s is then sent back to the Firm for verification. Barron’s then incorporates any required changes into the ranking, and finalizes the list for editorial use and publishing. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. After receiving notice of inclusion in the top 100 ranking list, Weatherly paid Dow Jones & Company for custom hard copy reprints and digital access. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

Excluded from the AUM calculation were commission products, broker account assets, and any assets for which firms received a trail or ongoing service commission. The ranking was determined by dividing this final AUM figure by the number of client relationships reported. *Methodology from 2005: The asset value of the average client relationship was calculated by dividing the total client assets under management (including assets under management reported on Form ADV plus additional client assets not reported on Form ADV for which the firm received a management or advisement fee) by the total number of client relationships. In a few instances, the value of client relationships for firms listed consecutively was the same because of rounding. Their rank order in the tables reflected their relative value when the division was carried out to additional decimal places. In some cases, marked with daggers, the underlying values were exactly the same, and these firms were ranked alphabetically. Assets under management and average assets per employee were handled in a similar manner. The data used for this ranking was taken from a questionnaire sent to firms and from data that those firms provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form ADV. Firms were identified through BLOOMBERG WEALTH MANAGER’s database and from other industry sources. To qualify for the ranking, firms had to meet the following criteria: They were registered investment advisors with the SEC; they had a minimum assets under advisement of $50 million; more than 50 percent of the firm’s client base consisted of “individuals” or “high-net-worth individuals” as defined by the SEC; the firms also offered financial–planning services.

Subsidiaries of larger companies were included, provided they met all the above-listed requirements and filed their own Form ADVs with the SEC. The 35 subsidiaries on the list were identified with an asterisk. The 500 firms on the ranking were categorized by size of assets under management, as follows: $1 billion or more, 40; $750 million to less than $1 billion, 23; $500 million to less than $750 million, 43; $250 million to less than $500 million, 101; $100 million to less than $250 million, 180; $100 million or less, 113.

Weatherly Asset Management chose to have a featured profile, highlighting the Firm’s comprehensive family office services and unique wealth management approach. The list generation process began with an invitation to Worth’s readers to nominate advisors who represent the absolute best of their profession. Worth also solicited nominations from banks, wealth management and investment firms, and industry associations. Nominated advisors and others who wished to participate then completed a detailed online questionnaire in which they provided their education and professional credentials and discuss their approaches to customer service, portfolio management and risk. Worth’s selections were based on the quality of the responses and the applicants’ insights into the current investment climate. Following the completion of a preliminary list, the final step involved confirming, to the extent possible, that the information the advisors provided was accurate and truthful. The criteria for ranking was based on firm assets, largest client’s net worth, median client net worth, and minimum assets for new clients. The list was ranked by state, and then alphabetically by Advisor’s last names. Weatherly was contacted by Worth for consideration in the list. Weatherly provided data to Worth in response to a survey request. No payment was required to be considered for or included in the published list. Weatherly paid a fee for the inclusion of an additional firm profile in the publication and paid a third party for associated reprints and e-print privileges. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

132005-Wealth Manager
Weatherly Asset Management, L.P. was included in Bloomberg Wealth Manager’s Top Wealth Managers Annual Ranking in the July/August, 2005 issue. The ranking of leading financial advisory firms consisted of 500 spots and was based on asset value of the average client relationship as of December 31, 2004. Weatherly was ranked number 372. The asset value of the average client relationship was calculated by dividing the total client assets under management (including assets under management reported on Form ADV plus additional client assets not reported on Form ADV for which the firm received a management or advisement fee) by the total number of client relationships. In a few instances, the value of client relationships for firms listed consecutively was the same because of rounding. Their rank order in the tables reflected their relative value when the division was carried out to additional decimal places. In some cases, the underlying values were exactly the same, and these firms were ranked alphabetically. Assets under management and average assets per employee were handled in a similar manner. The data used for this ranking was taken from a questionnaire sent to firms and from data that those firms provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form ADV. Firms were identified through BLOOMBERG WEALTH MANAGER’s database and from other industry sources. To qualify for the ranking, firms had to meet the following criteria: They were registered investment advisors with the SEC; they had a minimum assets under advisement of $50 million; more than 50 percent of the firm’s client base must consist of “individuals” or “high-net-worth individuals” as defined by the SEC; the firms must also offer financial–planning services. Not included in the ranking are banks, broker-dealers, and trust companies. Also excluded are firms that are branches of independent broker-dealers and those not operating as separate businesses with their own identities. Subsidiaries of larger companies were included, provided they met all the above-listed requirements and filed their own Form ADVs with the SEC. The 35 subsidiaries on the list were identified with an asterisk. The 500 firms on the ranking were categorized by size of assets under management, as follows: $1 billion or more, 40; $750 million to less than $1 billion, 23; $500 million to less than $750 million, 43; $250 million to less than $500 million, 101; $100 million to less than $250 million, 180; $100 million or less, 113. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. Weatherly paid a third party for reprints. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

32004-Worth
Weatherly Asset Management, L.P. was included in Worth’s “The Nation’s 100 Most Exclusive Wealth Advisors” list in the October, 2004 issue. The 100 firms are listed alphabetically by state, and then alphabetically by business name. In selecting the 100 Most Exclusive Wealth Advisors for 2004, Worth editors asked readers to nominate those advisors who possess this superior ability- along with a host of other desired qualities. Editors extended this request to private banks, wealth management and investment firms and other industry associations as well. Nominated advisors completed an extensive survey in which they listed their educational credentials, compensation structure, client retention rate, outlook on the investment climate and model portfolio returns. They also answered questions about their professional histories and whether they have been involved in any legal or disciplinary matters. Worth’s editorial staff selected about the daunting task of selecting the 100 Most Exclusive Wealth Advisors from a pool of several hundred candidates. At the top of the list of criteria that define superior wealth advisors are professional designations, which often evidence a higher level of knowledge and professional commitment. All credentials and designations were verified, and nominee backgrounds were checked using the LexisNexis legal database to search court and arbitration records with the National Association of Securities Dealers. Additional criteria evaluated included years of professional experience, client portfolio performance for 2003, insight into the current investment climate, and client feedback. Weatherly provided the names and contact information for three of its current clients, as requested by Worth. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the list. After receiving notice of inclusion in the list, Weatherly paid Worth for reprints. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Inclusion in 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

122004-Wealth Manager
Weatherly was ranked number 317 of 450 investment advisors on Bloomberg’s Wealth Manager Magazine’s Top Wealth Managers Fourth Annual Ranking in the July/August, 2004 issue. The criteria for the ranking of registered investment advisors included average client relationship size and assets under management. The methodology for BLOOMBERG WEALTH MANAGER’s fourth annual ranking of leading independent financial-advisory firms was based on the asset value of the average client relationship as of December 31, 2003. The list had 450 firms, listed in the “Champions” table beginning on page 70 of the July/August 2004 issue. The asset value of the average client relationship was calculated by dividing the total client assets under management (including assets under management reported on Form ADV plus additional client assets not reported on Form ADV for which the firm received a management fee or advisement fee) by the total number of client relationships. In certain instances, the value of the average client relationships for firms listed consecutively was the same because of rounding. Their rank order in the table reflects their relative value when the division was carried out to additional decimal places. In a few cases, marked with asterisks, the underlying values were exactly the same, and those firms were ranked alphabetically. The data used for this ranking was taken from a questionnaire sent to participating firms and from data that firms provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form ADV. Participants were identified through BLOOMBERG WEALTH MANAGER’s database and from other industry sources. To qualify for the ranking, firms had to meet the following criteria: They were registered investment advisers with the SEC. • They had minimum assets under management of $50 million. • The firms must also offer financial planning services. • More than 50 percent of the firm’s client base must consist of “individuals” or “high-net-worth individuals” as defined by the SEC. Not included in the ranking are banks, broker-dealers, trust companies, insurance companies, and firms that are subsidiaries of larger companies. Also excluded are firms that are branches of independent broker dealers and those not operating as separate businesses with their own identities. A new listing of firms that would otherwise qualify for the ranking except for the fact that they are subsidiaries of large organizations was presented in “Medalists” on page 84 of the July/August 2004 issue. The universe of 450 firms was categorized by size of assets under management, as follows: $500 million or more, 72; $200 million to $499 million, 115; $100 million to $199 million, 135; $50 million to $99 million, 128. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. After receiving notice of the award, Weatherly paid a third party for reprints. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

112003-Wealth Manager
Weatherly was included in a list of investment advisors on Bloomberg’s Top Wealth Managers Annual Ranking. The original ranking in the July/August, 2003 issue list consisted of 370 slots*. The criteria for the ranking of registered investment advisors included average client relationship size and assets under management. Firms were ranked by average client account size. The methodology for BLOOMBERG WEALTH MANAGER’s annual ranking of leading independent financial-advisory firms was based on the average client-account size for the year ending December 31, 2002. The average client-account size was calculated by dividing the total client assets (which include assets under management filed on the Form ADV plus additional client assets that were not reported on the filing) by the total number of client relationships. The data used for this ranking was taken from a questionnaire sent to participating firms and from data provided to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form ADV. Participants were identified through WEALTH MANAGER’s database and from other industry sources. Firms that were listed meet the following criteria: Were registered investment advisers; Stated minimum assets under management of $25 million; Indicated on the Form ADV that financial-planning services are offered; Reported on the WEALTH MANAGER questionnaire that comprehensive financial-planning services are provided either in house or via outsourcing; Declared that more than 50 percent of the client base; consisted of “individuals” or “high-net-worth individuals” as defined by the SEC. Because WEALTH MANAGER wanted independent advisory firms, they eliminated responses from banks, broker-dealers, trust companies, insurance companies, and their affiliates. Also, firms that are branches of independent broker-dealers were excluded, as were those not operating as separate businesses with their own identities. In cases where firms reported a higher number of client relationships than client accounts, they used the number of client accounts as the divisor to calculate the average account size. The universe of 370* firms was categorized by size of assets under management as follows: $200 million or more, 97; $100 million to $199 million, 84; $50 million to $99 million, 115; $25 million to $49 million, 74. *The publication ran an update in the January, 2004 issue stating: “Our ranking of Bloomberg’s Top Wealth Managers published in the July/August 2003 issue incorrectly reported the average client-account size for three firms. [Corrected figures for 3 firms provided]. In addition, the ranking left out 26 firms that should have been included. In many cases, the firms were dropped inadvertently because of inconsistencies between data items on our ranking questionnaires and those on the firms’ Form ADVs. These firms are listed below.” Weatherly was included on this list of 26 firms, which was sorted alphabetically by business name. No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals. Ranking 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 ranking or the appropriateness of advertising inclusion in this list.

Advisers in the running submitted a sample financial plan and two letters of recommendation. Registered investment advisers also supplied their Form ADVs, which describe their services, fee structures, and disciplinary histories (this is a document that any prospective client should review).
