  • Congratulations to Rick Wagener who was named to the Financial Times FT 400 list. The list of the top 400 financial advisors among national, regional and independent broker-dealers was published March 25, 2014. See the press release and Top 400 Financial Advisors full report for more information.

The Financial Times award is based on qualifications of 10+ years of experience and $200 million or more in assets under management. The FT then graded advisors on six broad factors and calculated a numeric score for each advisor. Areas of consideration include advisor AUM, asset growth, years of experience, industry certification, FINRA compliance record, and online accessibility.

March 2014

  • Rick and Amanda attended a two-day educational program covering essential portfolio management topics including updates on the market, ETF research and analysis, updates on new tax laws impacting high net worth investors and portfolio rebalancing.

    These advisors are members of the Institute of Investment Management Consulting’s Portfolio Management Group, PMG. This program is offered to these select advisors who have demonstrated expertise in developing and delivering investment portfolios to meet client needs.


  • Washington's Birthday was first declared a federal holiday by an 1879 act of Congress. The Monday Holiday Law, enacted in 1968, shifted the date of the commemoration of Washington's Birthday from February 22 to the third Monday in February, but neither that law nor any subsequent law changed the name of the holiday from Washington's Birthday to President's Day. Although the third Monday in February has become popularly known as President's Day, the NYSE's designation of Washington's Birthday as an Exchange holiday follows the form of the federal holiday.


  • Happy New Year!
