The Top 100 Women Financial Advisors – Barron’s
Del Mar, CA - June, 2015
Carolyn Taylor was included in Barron’s June 2015 Top 100 Women Financial Advisors list. The full list can be viewed on Barron’s website.
The criteria for ranking reflects assets under management, revenue that the advisors generate for their Firms, and the quality of the advisor’s practices. 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. 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 glossy reprints of the piece; Weatherly paid Dow Jones through RightsLink for permission to link to a Dow Jones WebReprint from our corporate website.
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.
