SHREWSBURY, N.J., March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fourth straight year, Financial Advisor magazine was ranked first among publications targeting professional financial advisors, according to Erdos & Morgan's Financial Advisor Media Usage and Outlook Study (FAMOUS). Erdos & Morgan has been conducting syndicated and custom market research since 1947.
Financial Advisor ranked ahead of Financial Planning, Investment Advisor, Investment News, Rep, and recently ceased publications On Wall Street and Research. Their survey of digital media websites designed specifically for professionals offering financial advice shows Financial Advisor's website, www.fa-mag.com, was selected as the online destination that they visited most often, ahead of financial-planning.com, investmentnews.com, thinkadvisor.com/investment-advisor, advisorperspectives.com, onwallstreet.com, one-fpa.org, wealthmanagement.com and advisorone.com/research-magazine.
"The results of this survey are a reflection on the talent and hard work of our editorial staff, as well as that of our many outside contributors. Our readers are fortunate that we have always supported spending on the editorial side of our business, regardless of the business climate," said Evan Simonoff, Editorial Director of Charter Financial Publishing Network, publisher of Financial Advisor.
"Seventeen years ago, we created FA to be the first and only publication to exclusively target and serve independent advisors and RIAs. As the industry has evolved, most of our competitors have reduced their print circulation and discontinued publications while we have expanded ours," said David Smith, Founding Publisher of Financial Advisor magazine.
In addition to its magazines and websites for financial advisors, CFPN offers custom publishing, webinars and national conferences that include Invest In Women, Inside Retirement, Inside Alternatives and Smart Beta.
