September 8, 2010
Rockford, IL (September 6, 2011) – Savant Capital Management, a locally owned and nationally recognized fee-only wealth management firm headquartered in Rockford, today announced that it has again been recognized by two of the leading financial trade publications as one of the top investment firms in the country.
Savant has been named by Barron’s magazine as one of the 100 best independent financial advisors in the United States. It is Savant’s fifth year on the closely watched list of the best in the investment advisory industry. Savant Capital Management is ranked 55 out of the top 100 in the country, and was one of just five Illinois financial advisors to make the Barron’s list.
Barron's rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors.
Additionally, Savant was named in Financial Advisor magazine’s 2011 Top RIA Rankings list. This year, Savant is ranked 43 out of 454 firms. This is the third year Savant has been recognized by the publication.
Financial Advisor magazine’s 2011 RIA ranking is based on voluntary responses from registered investment advisors who completed an online survey. To be included in the ranking, firms need to be independent RIAs who perform financial planning as part of their business services. They also need to file their own Form ADV with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) that shows assets under management. Firms are ranked based on the total of their discretionary and nondiscretionary assets reported for 2010 on their ADV.
