NAPA 2018 Top Women Advisors

More than 500 nominations were provided by NAPA’s extensive list of broker-dealer and RIA Firm Partners. Nominees were, in turn asked to respond to a series of quantitative and qualitative questions regarding their experience, education, team structure, accomplishments, and impact. Those responses were anonymized and then reviewed by a blue-ribbon (leadership from 4-5 of the major broker-dealer/RIA firms) panel of industry experts who, over the course of several weeks, selected the individuals honored in three separate categories: Captains: All-stars who happen to be principals, owners or team captains of their organizations. All-Stars: Top producers who have their own practice. Rising Stars: Top producers who have less than five years of experience with retirement plans as a financial advisor (some have been working with retirement plans longer, but not as a financial advisor). More than 12,000 votes were cast in support of these individuals, 18% of advisors received this award. Listing in this publication and/or award is not a guarantee of future investment success.
