NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark., June 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sowell Management Services is excited to announce it has been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers, as of June 16, 2016. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the United States.
This is the third annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times Ltd. in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry.
More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). Applicants that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM, AUM growth rate, years in existence, advanced industry credentials of the firm's advisors, online accessibility, and compliance records.
