CHICAGO, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HighTower announces that 12 of its advisors are featured in the Barron's "Top 1200 Advisors by State" listing for 2016.

Nearly 40 percent of all HighTower practices include an advisor who has been named to a Barron's list during his or her career. This percentage is among the highest in the industry. In addition, HighTower's approximate average annual revenue per advisor of $1.7 million is approximately 160 percent higher than industry average of $655,000 (source: PriceMetrix, The State of Retail Wealth Management, 5th Annual Report, 2015). The firm achieved significant growth in 2015: 14 teams representing $5.1 billion in AUM joined HighTower last year, including groups in four new locations: Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Newport Beach, Calif., Providence, R.I. and Seattle.

"Barron's recognition of these professionals reinforces our status as a community of the industry's elite financial advisors," said Michael Parker, Chief Development Officer, HighTower. "Wirehouse veterans, independent advisors and established RIAs alike come to HighTower based on the strength of our platform and the collective wisdom of our teams."

Every February, Barron's publishes its "Top 1200 Advisors by State" recognizing advisors that demonstrate exceptional performance, professionalism, client service, and community involvement.
