Forbes Recognizes Richard S. Brown & JNBA

We’re honored to share that Richard Brown, CEO of JNBA Financial Advisors, has been named to the Forbes 2018 Top Wealth Advisors List for the first time. This prestigious list includes 250 of the nation’s leading advisors, with Richard included in the top 100.

When Forbes compiles its list of Top Wealth Advisors in the nation, a number of factors are taken into account: industry experience, assets under management, revenue produced, compliance records and more. This year, the list was compiled from more than 25,700 nominations, which an independent firm, Shook Research, then evaluated based on an algorithm of quantitative data and qualitative criteria gained through due-diligence interviews. These qualitative factors included everything from if the advisors exhibit best practices in their approach to working with clients and within their practices, to if they provide a full client service experience when it comes to service model, investing process, fee structure, and breadth of services and resources offered.

That Richard was ranked in the top 100 of this impressive pool of candidates is an honor, indeed, especially considering this was the first year he was nominated to the Forbes list. And while we’re proud of recognitions like these, we also feel that they’re important in holding ourselves more accountable than ever to our clients. Congratulations, Richard, and thank you for helping us continue to raise the bar in striving to provide the best independent service possible to our clients.
