According to the full report, the 2023 Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list spotlights more than 7,000 financial professionals nationwide, out of more than 39,000 nominations, collectively managing nearly $11 trillion in assets.

“To be included with four of our other Heritage Financial Planning professionals listed within the Top 200 is a testament to the outstanding level of service that we strive to provide our clients,” said Brian Gracie, founding partner, Heritage Financial Consultants. “We push each other to be the very best every day.”

The Best in State Wealth Advisors award is independently produced by Forbes and is based on data from financial advisors, regulatory disclosures, and research by SHOOK. Each Best-In-State Wealth advisor—selected by SHOOK Research— are judged based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, gleaned through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, as well as quantitative data. Advisors must have a minimum of seven years’ experience to qualify, with the algorithm weighing additional considerations such as revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, and industry experience. The Heritage advisors were nominated for the award. Neither the advisor nor their parent firm paid a fee to Forbes or SHOOK for the nomination, receipt, or promotion of the award. The award was independently granted and member-ship in an organization was not required. Working with a Forbes Best in State Wealth Advisor is no guaran-tee of investment success.
