Barron’s 2024 Top 1200 Advisors

Del Mar, CA - March, 2024

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.

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.
