NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pence Wealth Management ("the firm"), a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA) and leading independent wealth manager, announced today that Barron's named it one of the country's top 100 private wealth management teams. The firm was the only team from Orange County to make the list.
The honor reflects the firm's devotion to client service, along with the depth of its expertise and commitment to doing business with honor and integrity. The rankings are based on a mix of quantitative and qualitative data, including assets under management, revenue production, professional certifications, and firm compliance and regulatory histories.
Laila Pence, Pence Wealth Management President and Co-Founder, said, "On behalf of the entire team, I'd like to thank Barron's for recognizing the great work our entire firm has done over the past year. It's a pleasure to work with this group, whose experience, tireless work ethic and commitment to offering personalized service allow us to make a difference in the lives of our clients and their families."
This is the latest in a long line of accolades for the firm in recent months. In March, Ms. Pence was included in the Barron's list of Top 1,200 Financial Advisors for the fifth consecutive year and was among the publication's Top 100 Independent Advisors and Top 100 Women Advisors in 2020. Meanwhile, earlier this year, Forbes named her a top female advisor in the United States and the no. 1 advisor in Southern California.
Dryden Pence, Pence Wealth Management Chief Investment Officer, concluded, "I'm delighted that our entire team was recognized by Barron's as being among the top wealth management teams in the country. Neither Laila nor I would trade our staff for any other group of professionals in the industry. However, at the end of the day, everything we do is about our clients, so we are both delighted and humbled by their continued trust in our abilities and thank them for the continued support of our business."

 The Forbes Ranking of America's Top Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years' experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio 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.
