The list recognizes advisors who demonstrate remarkable professionalism, performance, outstanding client service, and community involvement. Barron's publishes its list of top advisors each February, based on data provided by more than 4,000 of the nation's most productive advisors. The magazine considers assets under management, revenue produced, regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work when compiling its ranking.

Barron's selected HighTower advisors Brian Amidei in Palm Desert, Calif.; Nick Bapis in Salt Lake City, Utah; Jeffrey Grinspoon in Vienna, Va.; Jeff Leventhal in Bethesda, Md.; Paul Pagnato in Reston, Va.; Pamela Rosenau in Los Angeles, Calif.; and Richard Saperstein in New York, N.Y.

"These advisors exemplify the caliber of elite professionals that are synonymous with HighTower. Our unique model supports their ability to provide unobstructed investor guidance and exceptional client service," said Elliot Weissbluth, Chief Executive Officer of HighTower. "Barron's recognition validates the unwavering commitment we've made to focus on our clients' best interests, free from the conflicts of interest that have so damaged investor trust in Wall Street."

The Barron's recognition comes on the heels of extensive strategic growth for HighTower in the four years since its launch, with 35 teams of advisors in 15 cities. Committed to serving as fiduciaries, the firm's advisors benefit from the financial industry's first comprehensive technology solution that provides direct access to multiple custodians and clearing firms, best-in-class tools and a wide range of investment products.
