Beacon Pointe Recognized as a Barron's Top RIA Firm

It is a humble honor to be recognized by Barron’s for over half a decade as a top wealth advisory firm in the nation. We are deeply appreciative of the recognition of our company’s thoughtful and intentional growth and our efforts put forth to help clients achieve their financial aspirations through our allWEALTH® process, designed to align our clients’ life and wealth through a focus on three key areas: access to Institutional Quality Investments, Life & Legacy Planning, and Impact Initiatives.

The Barron’s Top RIA Firms award ranking is dedicated to recognizing elite firms across the country that demonstrate steady growth, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions of smaller RIA firms. Barron’s evaluation is based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria, including assets managed by the firms, technology spending, staff diversity, succession planning, and other valuable metrics. There are additional subcategories considered, including type of asset, client retention, growth rate, philanthropic work, and more. The rankings are meant as a baseline for clients searching for an advisor – helping investors narrow down their search to feel confident about their RIA firm selection.

Each year, the award has grown to include more and more firms in the list, starting with 20 top firms in 2016 and increasing year-over-year to reach 100 top firms in 2020, with over 13,000+ RIA firms across the country for Barron’s to select from. Barron’s Top 100 RIA Firms award ranking is dedicated to recognizing elite firms across the country that demonstrate steady growth, both organically and through mergers and acquisitions of smaller RIA firms.
