PORTLAND, Ore., March 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Barron's magazine recognizes Wayne von Borstel, of von Borstel & Associates in Portland, OR, as one of America's Top 1,200 Advisors for 2017 and for the third consecutive year. von Borstel is affiliated with LPL Financial, a leading retail investment advisory firm and the nation's largest independent broker/dealer.*
This esteemed annual list highlights top-performing financial advisors from across the country. Factors considered in determining the rankings include: assets under management, revenue generated for their firms, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work. von Borstel's thirty-two year practice has been built on helping clients stay systematic, unemotional and diversified through a focus on financial planning, academic investing, and ongoing coaching.
"We feel like times are different, but are they really? The world is as unpredictable as it has always been," explained von Borstel, whose life-long passion for finance began at the age of 18 when his grandmother let him invest her money. "Success as a financial planner and investment advisor comes from helping clients realize that we are not going to respond to news coming out of Wall Street or the White House. I help my clients pursue financial success by staying focused on the news coming out of their own homes."
von Borstel is the president and founder of von Borstel & Associates, Inc., an independent, full-service financial planning firm serving over 460 clients throughout the country from offices in The Dalles and Portland, OR.
