2011, Washington Business Journal, "Washington's Premier Wealth Advisors"

Listing includes 82 firms and is based on the National Association of Board Certified Advisory Practices proprietary methodology using surveys. The primary focus of NABCAP is to serve the needs of the investing public by helping identify top wealth managers. NABCAP and its board of directors created an unaffiliated evaluation process in which 20 categories of practice management are assessed. Advisors are invited and/or nominated to participate by submitting an online questionnaire. The multi-step verification process utilizes independent resources to assess the accuracy and truthfulness of the information submitted by participating advisory practices. NABCAP’s methodology is unique in deciphering advisors because it is primarily objective, not subjective, and helps add transparency for the investor’s benefit. NABCAP takes pride that its list of Premier Advisors is not merely defined by Assets Under Management (AUM), revenues produced or even worse, popularity. Alternatively, NABCAP attempts to identify top advisors regardless of size, firm or affiliation.
