Brent BrodeskiFor the third straight year, American business magazine, Forbes, ranked Savant CEO Brent Brodeski in its list of America's Top Wealth Advisors. Brodeski earned the No 46 spot in the nation for 2018 and ranked No. 3 in Illinois. He is the only independent Investment Advisory Representative (IAR) in the state of Illinois to make the list. The ranking is designed to fairly compare the business practices of a large group of advisors from the financial services industry including registered investment advisors like Savant, along with banks, brokerages, custodians, insurance companies, and others. More than 25,000 nominations were received but only 250 advisors were chosen. 

"America’s Top Wealth Advisors" is an independent listing of 250 advisors developed by SHOOK Research and published by Forbes. Data provided by SHOOK Research. Ranking algorithm is based on quality of practice learned through phone and in-person interviews, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including AUM and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerances vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Rankings are based on the opinions of SHOOK Research, LLC which does not receive compensation from the advisors or their firms in exchange for placement on a ranking.
