March 18, 2021

Adviser Investments is pleased to announce that, for the ninth year in a row, it has been recognized among 2021’s “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” and ranked as the #11 adviser in Massachusetts by Barron’s magazine.

Although Barron’s’ nationwide rankings of independent financial advisers for 2021 are not yet released, Adviser Investments came in at #30 in 2020. Its national list has recognized Adviser Investments among Barron’s’ “America’s Best Independent Advisers” rankings for eight consecutive years.

Barron’s “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” ranking is the magazine’s largest and most comprehensive list, recognizing leading advisers from all 50 states as well as the District of Columbia. The specific number of firms identified from each state is calculated by population and wealth, with Barron’s calculating on the following criteria: Assets under management (AUM), revenue generated by the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work.

Adviser Investments has earned multiple honors for its commitment to its workforce—most recently being named among the “Best Places to Work for Financial Advisers” in 2021 by InvestmentNews. In 2020, Adviser Investments was recognized for the fifth consecutive year among the “Best Places to Work in Money Management” by Pensions & Investments magazine.

In October 2020, the National Association for Business Resources (NABR) also included Adviser Investments on its Boston’s Best and Brightest Companies To Work For® list—the company’s fifth consecutive year achieving this honor. This competition identifies and celebrates organizations that display a commitment to excellence in their human resource practices and employee enrichment. In a separate accolade, Adviser Investments was recognized for the third year in a row among the “Nation’s Best and Brightest in Wellness” by the NABR.

Among other recent honors, RIA Channel named Adviser Investments a “Top 100 Wealth Manager” and the Boston Business Journal recognized the firm among Massachusetts’ top-25 independent investment advisers. RIA Channel alongside Forbes selected Adviser Investments as one of their “Top ETF Power Users.”
