Rockford, IL (July 20, 2010) – Savant Capital Management, a locally owned and nationally recognized fee-only wealth management firm headquartered in Rockford, has been recognized by InvestmentNews as the fifth largest Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) firm in the Midwest, ranked by discretionary assets under management. Savant was also named a top RIA firm by Financial Advisor magazine and Accounting Today magazine.
InvestmentNews recently released the results of its rankings of RIA Giants, naming Savant as #5 in the Midwest and #32 out of 50 nationally. All firms named on the Giants list manage more than $1 billion in assets. To be named to the list, a firm must not receive commissions or conduct business as a broker-dealer, and provides wealth management services to clients. This is the third year Savant has been named to the RIA Giants list.
Financial Advisor magazine also recently released their rankings of RIA firms, and Savant was designated as number 38 out of 456 firms nationally. The magazine ranked the firms by assets under management. According to Financial Advisor magazine, total assets increased by 23% in 2009 for RIA firms in general. As published in the rankings results, at the end of 2009 Savant managed nearly $1.6 billion in assets, saw a 32.66 percent growth in assets and only 1.68 percent change in number of clients.
CPA Wealth Provider, a special supplement to Accounting Today magazine, ranked Savant as #8 out of 15 RIA firms that manage over $1 billion in assets in their Wealth Magnets list. The magazine ranks firms by several categories: The Billion Dollar Club, the $100 + Million Club, the $50 Million + Club and the Rising Stars, rating a total of 181 firms.
“Savant continues to put its clients first in all situations,” said Managing Partner Brent Brodeski. “We have been fortunate to work with a number of clients in the region and to grow as a firm. We attribute our success to our philosophy of providing world class wealth management planning on a fee-only basis, meaning we do not receive commissions or sell products.”
