NEW YORK – March 24, 2021 – Forbes and SHOOK Research today announced the fifth annual Top Women Wealth Advisors, an extensive ranking based on client service, compliance and investing process. The 1,000 women on the 2021 list manage nearly $1.2 trillion in client assets, and nearly fifty percent manage at least $1 billion, an increase from twenty percent in 2020.

The wealth managers honored on this list have offered exemplary service and have prospered in a year of unprecedented challenges. The ranking covers 1,000 of the best women wealth advisors in the nation. SHOOK Research analysts reviewed surveys and conducted virtual, telephone and in-person interviews with advisors.  

·        “We saw more female advisors than ever nominated for our recent Best-In-State rankings, reflecting a change in the industry,” said SHOOK Research President R.J. Shook. “Seeing the incredible women on this list, it shows clients are demanding diversity and want to see advisors that look like them. It’s an honor to highlight the women who are making a difference in their clients’ lives. This ranking isn’t just about the numbers, it showcases role models – advisors that are leaders, offering best practices, and providing the highest-quality experience.”

·        SHOOK Research uses a proprietary algorithm to weigh additional considerations such as revenue trends, assets under management and industry experience. Advisors must have at least seven years of professional experience to qualify for consideration. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
