METHODOLOGY: This year's list of Top 100 Wirehouse Advisors in America was assembled from names submitted by Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch Global Wealth Management, Wells Fargo Advisors, and UBS Financial Services. They are ranked by assets under management custodied at the wirehouses, effective June 30, 2010 (Merrill Lynch and UBS figures are effective May 31, 2010). Only those advisors for whom a majority of assets correspond to retail clients were eligible for the list.
