July 30, 2020 — Visionary Wealth Advisors, LLC. is pleased to announce it has been named to the 2020 edition of the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.
This is the seventh annual FT 300 list and Visionary’s second time being named. The list is produced independently by Ignites Research, a division of Money-Media, Inc., on behalf of the Financial Times.
Co-Founder and President, Tim Hammett said, “Visionary could not be more honored to be named one of the Top 300 Fastest-Growing RIA’s twice in the past six years! We could not have accomplished this without the trust our loyal clients’ place in the amazing members of Visionary.”
RIA firms applied for consideration, having met a minimum set of criteria. Applicants were then graded on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records. There are no fees or other considerations required of RIAs that apply for the FT 300.
“We were thrilled to be named one of the fastest-growing firms in America!” said Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Brett Gilliland. “It is amazing what can happen when you have advisors, leadership, and staff working toward our mission of helping clients achieve a future greater than their past. We are thankful for our clients and the communities we serve.”
The final FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the median AUM of this year’s group is $1.9 billion. The FT 300 Top RIAs represent 39 different states and Washington, D.C.
