CORAL GABLES, Fla., July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Gold, Managing Director with Raymond James & Associates, member New York Stock Exchange/SIPC, was recently named to the Forbes list of America's Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors, which recognizes advisors from national, regional and independent firms.
"I consider it an honor to be ranked among our country's top next-generation wealth advisors," Gold said. "To be included among such an elite group is humbling."
The Forbes ranking of America's Top Next-Generation Wealth Advisors, developed by Shook Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative data, rating thousands of advisors with a minimum of four years of experience and weighing factors like telephone and in-person interviews, client retention, industry experience, credentials, review of compliance records, and firm nominations. It also weighs quantitative criteria, such as assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor Shook receives a fee in exchange for rankings.
Gold, whose group manages more than 2.1 billion in client assets, specializes in wealth management for high net worth individuals, companies, not-for-profit corporations and endowments.
