JNBA’s CEO Richard S. Brown named to Forbes Top Wealth Advisors List for second year

We’re proud to share that Richard S. Brown, CEO of JNBA Financial Advisors, has been named to the Forbes 2019 Top Wealth Advisors List. The list includes 250 of the nation’s leading advisors; Richard is ranked 151st nationwide. He was also named one of Minnesota’s top three financial advisors, appearing on the list as the state’s top independent Registered Investment Advisor (RIA).

This is the second year Richard has been named to the prestigious list, which was compiled from more than 30,000 nominations. An independent firm, Shook Research, evaluated nominees based on quantitative data and qualitative criteria gained through due-diligence interviews. Factors included everything from how the advisors exhibit best practices in their approach to working with clients and within their practices, assets under management, compliance records, revenue trends, and industry experience.

While Richard is honored by this recognition, he also says it is a testament to the entire team at JNBA Financial Advisors. “Every day our people work extremely hard to bring our advice driven by advocacy™ approach to life,” says Richard. “That overriding philosophy – to always act in our clients’ best interests – is as integral to our success today as it was when we opened our doors 40 years ago.”

Kudos to Richard and the entire team, and thanks, as always, to our wonderful clients who put their trust in us to be their advocates.
