Barron's specifically awarded Stewart Massey, Founding Partner and Chief Investment Strategist a ranking for the seventh consecutive year; five times as one of the nation's top 100 independent advisors (2010-2014), and three times as one of the Top Financial Advisors ranked by state (2015-2017). The rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron's uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor's returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of clients. Individuals/advisory firms did not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of "Barron's Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors." The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor's regulatory record. For additional information visit www.barrons.com. The rankings are not indicative of future performance.
Massey, Quick & Co., LLC was named Financial Times Top 300 ("FT 300") Registered Investment Advisors in 2014 and 2015. The Financial Times Top 300 Registered Investment Advisors is an independent listing produced by Financial Times. The listing is based on data gathered from RIA firms, regulatory disclosures, and the FT's research. As identified by the FT, the listing reflects each practices' performance in six primary areas, including assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, years in existence, credentials and accessibility.
