METHODOLOGY:

This year's list of Top 100 Wirehouse Advisors in America was created by Discovery Database, an online database of financial service intermediaries published by the Financial Information Group of Shrewsburry, N.J. Discovery has created a proprietary methodology for ranking FINRA registered representatives. In this list, the advisors were ranked by assets under management using the Discovery-RR database system. In addition, the names and information on this list were vetted with each firm to double check accuracy.
