NATIONAL OFFICE – Jack Thurman, president of BKD Wealth Advisors, LLC, is proud to announce BKD Wealth Advisors has been included on the Financial Times (FT) Top 300 Independent Registered Investment Advisers (RIA) of 2016 list. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.
“I’m very proud of the national recognition this provides our team,” Thurman said. “It is a testament to the passion of our personnel to deliver a unique client experience based upon trust, relationships and expertise.”
The FT 300 is independently produced by the FT in collaboration with Ignites Research—an FT subsidiary—that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. According to the list, the average FT 300 firm has been in existence for 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets.
The FT graded more than 1,500 pre-screened applicants on six criteria: assets under management (AUM), AUM growth rate, years in existence, advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisors, online accessibility and compliance records. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to the FT in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.
