Asset Management Group a Winner of InvestmentNews' 2017 Best Practices Awards
The winners of the InvestmentNews Best Practices Awards were identified through their participation in the 2017 Adviser Compensation & Staffing and the 2017 Adviser Technology Study. The winning firms were officially recognized today at InvestmentNews' Best Practices Award and Workshop held in Boston, Mass.
"The Best Practices winners are some of the most strategic and successful firms in the advice business," said Mark Bruno, associate publisher at InvestmentNews and head of InvestmentNews Research. "Their leaders have a clear plan and vision for growing their firms and managing elite organizations. Acknowledging their accomplishments and telling their stories will help educate, inform and influence the growth of the overall industry."
To identify the 2017 Best Practices Award winners, InvestmentNews Research created composite scores that examined several key metrics from its core benchmarking studies – including a firm's rate of growth, profitability and productivity level. The data was obtained from over 700 independent advisory firms that participated in the 2017 Adviser Compensation & Staffing Study and the 2017 Adviser Technology Study. The "Best Practices" were those who ranked among the top-quartile of all participants; in addition, the final firms were selected after qualitative interviews conducted by the InvestmentNews Best Practices Committee.
"We are delighted to have been included in such a prestigious group of financial and advisory firms and could only have accomplished this record as a direct result of our team, and the clients who provide us with the opportunity to assist them in reaching their goals", said Asset Management Group's President LeGrand S. Redfield, Jr.
