*Disclaimers: The Forbes ranking of Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven year's experience, and the algorithm weights 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 criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. *Image reprinted with permission of Barron's. The Barron’s Top 1200 Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced by Barron’s. The Barron’s Top 1200 is based on assets under management, revenues generated by advisors for their firms, and quality of practices. In evaluating advisors, we examine regulatory records, internal company documents, and extensive questionnaires filled out by the advisors themselves. * The Financial Times 400 Top Financial Advisors is an independent listing produced annually by the Financial Times (March 2018). The FT 400 is based on data gathered from advisors, broker-dealer home offices, regulatory disclosures, and the FT’s research. The listing reflects each advisor’s status in six primary areas: assets under management (AUM), asset growth, compliance record, experience, credentials and online accessibility. This award does not evaluate the quality of services provided to clients and is not indicative of this advisor’s future performance. Neither the brokerages nor the advisors pay a fee to the Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 400.


John graduated from the University of Virginia in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in economics.
