Information provided is based 6/30/22.  Forbes’ Best-In-State, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria and quantitative data. Considered advisors have a minimum of seven years of experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data.  Research summary (as of April 2023): 39,007 nominations received based on high thresholds and qualifications, 22,243 invited to complete online survey, 17,546 telephone interviews, 3,557 in-person interviews at advisors’ location, and 1,361 web-based interviews.
