BOSTON, July 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TFC Financial, a Boston-based Registered Investment Advisor, has been named to Financial Advisor magazine's 2016 Top RIA Rankings. Co-founded in 1980 by Chairman and CEO Jim Joslin, CFP®, TFC is an independent, fee-only financial advisory and investment management firm that serves individuals, couples and families, as well as offers strategic financial planning and endowment asset management services for non-profit boards.
The ranking is based on assets under management and comprises more than 600 firms. To be eligible, firms must be registered investment advisors and provide financial planning services to individual clients.
"As a truly independent firm owned by its principal employees, we always act in our clients' best interest, recommending strategies that we believe will help most effectively to meet their long-term financial goals," said President Renée Kwok, CFP®. "We believe that is why we have experienced such low turnover and why our growth has always come from referrals."
With increased regulation in the industry, in particular the recent Department of Labor's focus on ensuring that retirement plan participants receive advice that is consistent with a fiduciary standard, TFC stands out as a firm that has adhered to this approach since its inception.
"When I joined TFC in 1991, I had been specifically looking for a wealth management and financial planning firm that had no conflicts of interest when serving clients," said Kwok. "I did a lot of research when I chose to make a career move, and it was TFC's client service philosophy that caused me to seek them out."
