The 2020 FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms

NEW YORK, NY, July 31, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Wealthspire Advisors, an NFP company and independent registered investment advisor (RIA), is pleased to announce it has been named to the 2020 Financial Times 300 (FT 300), a list recognizing top RIAs across the US. Wealthspire Advisors was formed in 2019 through the combination of Sontag Advisory and Bronfman Rothschild, both of which were included in the FT 300 in previous years. This is the first year Wealthspire Advisors could be considered for the list, a reflection of the continued success of the firms as a combined entity.

Qualified list applicants were graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records. There are no fees or other considerations required of RIAs that apply for the FT 300.

The 2020 FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the median AUM of this year’s group is $1.9 billion. The RIAs on the FT 300 represent 39 states and Washington, D.C.

“Being included in the Financial Times list is an honor and a testament to the collaboration and performance of our talented team,” said Wealthspire Advisors CEO Mike LaMena. “The Wealthspire team remains very grateful for the opportunities we have to serve our clients. We are working harder than ever to drive growth and help them navigate to their goals, especially during these challenging times.”

This is the seventh annual FT 300 list, produced independently by Ignites Research on behalf of the Financial Times. Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., provides business intelligence on investment management.
