Karen Reifel2024 – Out of 1,000 talented wealth advisors, we are proud to announce that senior wealth advisor, Karen Reifel, CFP® was included in the ‘200 RIAs to Watch’ category ranking, securing the Top 14 position in the 2024 AdvisorHub ‘Advisors to Watch’ awards. With this year’s ranking including 100 more wealth advisors in the category talent pool than last year, we commend Karen Reifel, CFP® for proudly representing Beacon Pointe Advisors and for her client service excellence. Notably, AdvisorHub also highlighted Karen for her dedication to financial literacy, with her efforts backing the Amazon best-selling book, Your Dollars, Our Sense: A Simple Guide to Money Matters, and co-hosting the Beacon Pointe podcast, Your Dollars, Our Sense.

In the 2024 released rankings, AdvisorHub received nominations from 339 firms, with nominees required to have a minimum of seven years of experience, a $150m AUM minimum, and a clean regulatory record. Additionally, advisors were ranked on the 1) size and makeup of their practice; 2) year-over-year growth; 3) and professionalism. The trends driving advisors’ success this year were noted by AdvisorHub as teamwork, systemization, and AI usage, advisor plus models, and values (not ESG) – however, the publication also highlights that it is hard work and diligence that create the habits that drive the results and create the success.

Karen’s alignment with our Beacon Pointe mission to provide comprehensive, client-focused wisdom marks her as a vital asset to our team and this recognition is a testament to her outstanding efforts to strengthen individuals and her clients with the knowledge to achieve financial autonomy.
