Best Financial Advisor Firms for Everyday Americans 2024

January 23, 2024

The investor.com 2024 Annual Awards draw upon our proprietary database of 17,000+ registered investment advisory (RIA) firms in the U.S.

Every month, we collect publicly accessible data from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) IAPD Database; RIA firms are required to file this information annually. We then filter for data points that are incorporated into our proprietary Trust Algorithm. Research for this list spanned more than six months and represents consideration of thousands of data points.

The winning financial advisory firms listed here focus on serving clients with an average invested balance of $1 million or less and have a proven track record of ethical behavior. To put it plainly, if you’re a middle-income American looking for financial advice, these firms are likely to be a great fit for you.

Methodology:

To qualify for the Best Financial Advisor Firms Serving Everyday Americans award, firms had to meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrate a focus on everyday Americans: These firms’ average client balance is $1 million or less, showing that they’re eager to work with smaller-dollar clients, and a minimum of 90% of their assets under management comes from non-high-net-worth individual clients.
  • Have a reputable history: All of these firms report zero disciplinary marks against them and zero conflicts of interest.*
  • Be an established business: We limit this award to companies that have been in business for a minimum of 5 years, have at least 50 clients, and have at least $20 million in assets under management from non-high-net-worth individuals.

Data as of Dec. 3, 2023

*Data covers the following conflicts of interest: attorney conflict, broker-dealer conflict, commissions compensation conflict, insurance agency conflict, insurance affiliation conflict, private investment management, proprietary investments, soft-dollar benefit conflict. See our Trust Algorithm page for more on the conflicts and disciplinary history we track.
