Carolyn Taylor was included in Barron’s 2021 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 09/30/2020, 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 over 4000 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 87th in the state of California.

No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. After receiving notice of inclusion in the top 1200 list, Weatherly plans to pay Dow Jones Reprints and Licensing for custom hard copy reprints and digital access. 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. 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.

Upon completion, all four advisors were named 2021 Five Star Wealth Managers. View Weatherly’s profile here.

The Five Star Wealth Manager award program recognizes and promotes wealth managers. Five Star Wealth Manager candidates were identified by one of three sources; firm nomination, peer nomination or pre-qualification based on industry standing. Five Star Professional notified advisors of their candidacy for the award via an email solicitation. Weatherly provided data in the form of an online survey submission and each advisor participated in a phone interview to confirm personal information. Neither Weatherly nor its employees were required to be a member of an organization to be eligible to receive the award. No payment was required of Weatherly to be considered for the award or to be named a Five Star Wealth Manager. Once awarded, wealth managers may opt to purchase additional profile ad space or related award promotional products. Weatherly purchased additional profile ad space in the Wall Street Journal and digital and hard-copy reprints.

Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Five Star Wealth Managers. Award does not evaluate quality of services provided to clients. Once awarded, wealth managers may purchase additional profile ad space or promotional products. The Five Star award is not indicative of the wealth manager’s future performance. Wealth managers may or may not use discretion in their practice and therefore may not manage their client’s assets. The inclusion of a wealth manager on the Five Star Wealth Manager list should not be construed as an endorsement of the wealth manager by Five Star Professional or this publication. Working with a Five Star Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success, nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Five Star Professional in the future. For more information on the Five Star award and the research/selection methodology, go to fivestarprofessional.com. 2,218 San Diego-area wealth managers were considered for the award; 231 (10% of candidates) were named 2021 Five Star Wealth Managers. 2020: 2,018 considered, 219 winners; 2019: 1,885 considered, 224 winners; 2018: 1,498 considered, 228 winners; 2017: 1,349 considered, 349 winners; 2016: 1,337 considered, 349 winners; 2015: 1,639 considered, 350 winners; 2014: 1,838 considered, 368 winners; 2013: 1,675 considered, 417 winners; 2012: 1,014 considered, 284 winners.

Five Star Professional conducts a review of each award candidate as reported by FINRA and the SEC. For wealth managers with a CRD Number, Five Star Professional relies on the wealth manager’s FINRA BrokerCheck Report and/or the SEC Investment Adviser Public Disclosure website. For wealth managers without a CRD Number, Five Star Professional relies on Form ADV for the wealth manager’s firm. Additionally, Five Star Professional promotes, via local advertising and through their website, the opportunity to submit feedback — including whether a consumer had an unsatisfactory experience — regarding a wealth manager. Complaint data submitted in this way serves as an early alert system to unfiled consumer complaints and augments the regulatory review of reported complaints.

Receipt of this award 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 award or the appropriateness of advertising the award.

Carolyn Taylor was nominated for Shook Research’s 2021 Best-in-State Wealth Advisors list. She was invited to complete an online survey detailing information about her career, as well as Weatherly as a firm. Carolyn was named 41st out of the 79 named from Southern California. In total, the list showcased over 5,000 wealth managers. The list was published on February 11th, 2021 on Forbes.com. View the listing here. 

The 2021 Best-In-State ranking is based on firms’ AUM as of 6/30/20 and reflects Weatherly’s AUM of $902,402,386.
The 2021 Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. The ranking algorithm is designed to fairly compare the business practices of a large group of advisors based on quantitative and qualitative elements. Data are weighted to ensure priorities are given to dynamics such as preferred “best practices”, business models, recent business activity, etc. Each variable is graded and represents a certain value for each measured component. These data are fed into an algorithm that measures thousands of advisors against each other. The algorithm weighted factors including revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those advisors that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. In total, 32,725 nominations were received and 15,854 advisors were invited to complete the online survey. Throughout the research process, 13,114 telephone interviews, 2,085 in-person interviews, and 619 Web-based interviews were conducted. The ranking listed over 5,000 advisors, 79 of which were located in Southern California.

Basic Requirements to be considered for the “Forbes Best-in-State Wealth Advisors” included:1) 7 years as an advisor; 2) minimum 1 year at current firm 3)advisor must be recommended, and nominated, by Firm, 4) completion of online survey; 5) over 50% of revenue/production must be with individuals; and 6) an acceptable compliance record. In addition to the above basic requirements, advisors were also judged on the following quantitative figures: 1) revenue/production; weightings assigned for each; 2)assets under management—and quality of those assets—both custodied and a scrutinized look at assets held away (although individual numbers are used for ranking purposes, the ranking publishes the entire team’s assets); 3)client-related data (i.e.retention.) NOTE: Portfolio performance was not considered – audited returns among advisors are rare, and differing client objectives provide varying returns. Qualitative considerations examined included but were not limited to: 1) telephone and in-person meetings with advisors; 2) advisors exhibiting “best practices” within their practices and approach to working with clients and 3)advisors that provide a full client experience (factors examined include service model, investing processes, fee structure (higher % of fee-based assets earns more points,) and breadth of services, including extensive use of Firm’s platform and resources; 4)credentials (years of service can serve as proxy); 5) use of team & team dynamics; 6) community involvement; 7)discussions with management, peers, competing peers, and 8)telephone and in-person meetings. Compliance records and U4s were also reviewed in detail as part of the selection process including: 1) infractions denied or closed with no action; 2) complaints that arose from a product, service or advice initiated by a previous advisor or another member or former member of team; 3) length of time since complaint; 4)complaints related to product failure not related to investment advice; 5) complaints that have been settled to appease a client who remained with the advisor for at least one year following settlement date; 6)complaints that were proven to be meritless; and 6) actions taken as a result of administrative error or failure by firm.
Weatherly Asset Management did not pay any fees to SHOOK to be nominated or included in the “Forbes Best-In- State Wealth Advisors” list and Weatherly was not required to advertise in, or subscribe to, Forbes. As of the time of this disclosure, Weatherly did not elect to pay for reprints of the list.

Inclusion in this ranking 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 the award.

The criteria for ranking reflects assets under management as of 03/31/2020, 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 was ranked 63rd.

Carolyn Taylor was invited to participate in the nomination process via email solicitation from Barrons, 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.

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.

Weatherly Asset Management, L.P. was included in the 2020 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisors list. This list was published online on FT.com, on July 30, 2020. View the list here: FT300_PDF_Reprint. The selection process for the Financial Times 300 (“FT 300”) is based on the largest independent Registered Investment Advisors across the United States that meet the following 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 12/31/19), have no more than 75% of its practice’s assets be institutional, and be independent (it cannot be the RIA arm of a broker-dealer, for example). Financial Times invited roughly 4500 SEC registered RIA companies across the US who reported $300mm or more in AUM to participate in the review process. Some 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 72 per cent of each adviser’s score, while asset growth accounted for an average of 15 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.

No payment was required for nomination or inclusion in the ranking. After receiving notice of inclusion in the list, 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.

San Diego Business Journal included Weatherly Asset Management in the 2020 listing of Wealth Management Firms, published on May 4, 2020. Placed among the best in San Diego County, WAM lands the 16th spot of 42 firms in total.  Eligibility requirements to participate included being a registered investment adviser with either the Securities Exchange Commission or the California Department of Corporations.   The criteria by which Firms were ranked was based on assets managed in San Diego County for fiscal year 2019.

After receiving an email invitation from the Journal to participate in the list, Weatherly completed a brief online survey.  A third-party CPA was required to complete an attestation for total assets managed in 2019 and 2018. The Journal used the CPA attestation to verify Weatherly’s assets under management for FY 2019 and FY 2018.  It is not the intent of the list to endorse the participants nor to imply a firm’s size or numerical rank indicates its quality. There was no fee to participate in the list ranking, and Weatherly was not required to advertise in, or subscribe to, the San Diego Business Journal.  No organizational memberships were required of the Firm or individuals.  Inclusion in the ranking is not representative of any one client’s experience and is not indicative of Weatherly’s future performance.  Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.  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.

Carolyn Taylor was nominated for Shook Research’s 2020 Top Women Wealth Advisors list.  She was invited to complete an online survey detailing information about her career, as well as Weatherly as a firm. Carolyn was named 325th out of 1,000 advisors in total. The list was published on April 21st, 2020 on Forbes.com at https://www.forbes.com/top-women-advisors/#143cf71f51f4.

The 2020 Top Women Wealth Advisors ranking is based on firms’ AUM as of 9/30/19 and reflects Weatherly’s discretionary AUM of $808 Million.

The Forbes ranking of America’s Top Women Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of: qualitative data, such as telephone and in-person interviews, a review of best practices, service and

investing models, and compliance records; as well as quantitative data, like revenue trends and assets under management. All advisors have a minimum of seven years’ experience. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due

to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. In total, 32,000 nominations were received and 14,190 advisors were invited to complete the online survey. Throughout the research process, 11,864 telephone interviews and 2,356 in-person interviews were conducted. The ranking listed 1,000 advisors, and Carolyn was ranked 325th.

Basic Requirements to be considered for the “Forbes Top Women Wealth Advisors” included: 1) 7 years as an advisor; 2) minimum 1 year at current firm 3) advisor must be recommended, and nominated, by Firm, 4) completion of online survey; 5) over 50% of revenue/production must be with individuals; and 6) an acceptable compliance record. In addition to the above basic requirements, advisors were also judged on the following quantitative figures: 1) revenue/production; weightings assigned for each; 2) assets under management—and quality of those assets—both custodied and a scrutinized look at assets held away (although individual numbers are used for ranking purposes, the ranking publishes the entire team’s assets); 3) client-related data (i.e.retention.) NOTE: Portfolio performance was not considered – audited returns among advisors are rare, and differing client objectives provide varying returns.  Qualitative considerations examined included but were not limited to: 1) telephone and in-person meetings with advisors; 2) compliance records and U4s; 3) advisors that provide a full client experience (factors examined include service model, investing processes, fee structure (higher % of fee-based assets earns more points,)  and breadth of services, including extensive use of Firm’s platform and resources; 4) credentials (years of service can serve as proxy); 5) use of team & team dynamics; 6) community involvement; 7) discussions with management, peers, competing peers, and 8)telephone and in-person meetings.  Compliance records and U4s were also reviewed in detail as part of the selection process including:  1) infractions denied or closed with no action; 2) complaints that arose from a product, service or advice initiated by a previous advisor or another member or former member of team; 3) length of time since complaint; 4)complaints related to product failure not related to investment advice; 5) complaints that have been settled to appease a client who remained with the advisor for at least one year following settlement date; 6) complaints that were proven to be meritless; and 7) actions taken as a result of administrative error or failure by firm.

Weatherly Asset Management did not pay any fees to SHOOK to be nominated or included in the “Forbes Top Women Wealth Advisors” list and Weatherly was not required to advertise in, or subscribe to, Forbes.  As of the time of this disclosure, Weatherly did not elect to pay for reprints of the list.
