Barron’s Names Richard S. Brown and JNBA Financial Advisors One of the Top Two Advisors in Minnesota for Third Year in a Row

We’re honored to share that for the third consecutive year, JNBA CEO Richard S. Brown has been ranked by Barron’s as one of the state’s top two financial advisors, appearing on the list as Minnesota’s top fee-only independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). Also, for the 10th consecutive year, our independent firm has been named to Barron’s list of the 1,200 top advisors in the country.

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we couldn’t be more grateful to be named one of Minnesota’s top financial advisors again this year. We’re proud to have created a long-standing business model of transparency, independence, and advocacy. We believe the consistent recognition is a ringing reinforcement of JNBA’s approach and measurable and positive impact on our clients, colleagues, and community. Barron’s ranked advisors on a comprehensive set of factors including quality of practice, assets under management, revenue and regulatory record.
