Carolyn Taylor was nominated for Shook Research’s 2024 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 5th out of the 154 named in the  Southern California HNW category.  In total, the list showcased over 8,500 wealth managers. The list was published on April 3rd, 2024 on Forbes.com at https://www.forbes.com/lists/best-in-state-wealth-advisors/?sh=78d8814d6ab9.

The 2024 Best-In-State ranking is based on data collected as of 06/30/23 and reflects Weatherly’s AUM of $1.1B.

Forbes America’s Top Wealth Advisors and Best-in-State Wealth Advisors ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual, and telephone due diligence meetings to measure best practices, client retention, industry experience, credentials, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, such as: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. SHOOK’s research and rankings provide opinions intended to help investors choose the right financial advisor and are not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client’s experience. Past performance is not an indication of future results. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receive compensation in exchange for placement on the ranking. For more information, please see www.SHOOKresearch.com.SHOOK is a registered trademark of SHOOK Research, LLC. In total, 44,990 nominations were received and 23,876 advisors were invited to complete the online survey. Throughout the research process, 20,412 telephone interviews, 4,926 in-person interviews, and 1,507 web-based interviews were conducted. The ranking listed over 8,500 advisors, 154 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) weightings assigned for both revenue and production data; 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, we publish the entire team’s assets); 3) client-related data, such as retention; 4) portfolio performance is not a factor (audited returns among advisors are rare, and differing client objectives provide varying returns). Qualitative considerations examined included but were not limited to: 1) telephone, virtual, and in-person meetings with advisors (telephone interviews are required; if an in-person meeting cannot be accomplished, exceptions are considered in which the interview will occur after a ranking has been published); 2) advisors that exhibit “best practices” within their practices and approach to working with clients; 3) compliance records and U4s;  4) advisors that provide a full client experience: service model; 5) telephone, virtual, 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 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.

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.

Six of Weatherly’s team members were named 2024 Five Star Wealth Managers in December of 2023. Five Star Professional completed the interview process to determine 2024 Five Star Wealth Managers, and included Carolyn Taylor, Brent Armstrong, Kelli Burger, Brooke Boone Kelly, Ryan Richardson, and Aubrey Brown in their rankings. The article can be found here.

The detailed Five Star Professional Wealth Manager Program Summary and Research Methodology is available online.

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.

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.

Weatherly did not pay Five Star for promotional materials associated with the 2024 Five Star program.

In total, 2,242 San Diego-area wealth managers were considered for the award; 197 (9% of candidates) were named 2024 Five Star Wealth Managers; 2023: 2,123 considered, 211 winners; 2022: 2,084 considered, 223 winners; 2021: 6,123 considered, 459 winners; 2020: 2,018 considered, 231 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.

Carolyn Taylor was featured in Barron’s Fall 2023 Big Money Poll of professional investors article. This poll allowed professionals to share their views on the financial markets, the economy, and the developments that will shape both in the year ahead. Barron’s has been conducting the Big Money Poll for nearly 30 years.   The Fall 2023 Big Money Poll was published in Barron’s and on barrons.com in late October. As in the past, the Fall 2023 poll surveyed a cross-section of the nation’s top money managers.

Carolyn received an email inviting her to participate in Barron’s Fall 2023 Big Money Poll.  Barron’s solicits the investment opinions of professional investors every spring and fall.

Barron’s conducted the Big Money Poll with the assistance of Erdos Media Research. Weatherly responded to the invitation by submitting answers to the online survey.   As with past polls, interviews with a number of money managers who completed surveys were conducted. After Weatherly submitted the online survey, the team was contacted to schedule a phone interview  with Barrons.  The phone interview with Barron’s  took place in mid October with Weatherly’s Carolyn Taylor and Brent Armstrong.  The resulting article is available here and features comments from Carolyn and a variety of other money managers.

There was no cost to participate in the survey or interview process.  Weatherly paid Dow Jones Barron’s for a digital PDF WebReprint of the article. Weatherly was not required to advertise in or subscribe to Barrons to participate in the survey or article.

Inclusion in this article 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.

Kelli Burger was an excellence awardee in the Portfolio Manager of the Year program category of the Investment News Women to Watch awards program. 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. Of the Weatherly nominees, only Kelli made it to the 3rd stage of the program processes.

Weatherly paid Key Media for a promotional package including digital profile exposure in InvestmentNews.
