WELLESLEY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the eighth year in a row, Greg Miller, CPA, CEO, Portfolio Manager and Co-Founder of Wellesley Asset Management, has been ranked a Top 100 Independent Financial Advisor by Barron’s. Announced in the September 20, 2018 edition of The Wall Street Journal, this year’s ranking list, published by Barron’s, marks the fourth time Miller has been Massachusetts’ top advisor on the annual listing, and the fourth consecutive year he has placed in the top ten nationally, moving up to the #2 spot in the USA for 2018.
President, Portfolio Manager, and Co-Founder of Wellesley Asset Management, Darlene Murphy, CPA, CFP®, commented, “We are honored to be ranked on Barron’s top advisor list and to see Greg Miller receive Massachusetts’ top ranking again, as well as the number two ranking nationally. My congratulations to my business partner, Greg, to our team of hard-working professionals, and to our clients for their years of loyalty and confidence in our services.”
Michael Miller, CFIP, Chief Investment Officer added, “To continually receive such prestigious rankings by Barron’s is an impressive accomplishment for Greg and our entire firm. These types of recognitions affirm the confidence we and our clients have in our convertible bond investing strategy which seeks to protect principal while growing wealth in both bull and bear markets.”
To be nominated for Barron’s Top 100 Independent Investment Advisor listing, advisors must complete an extensive survey about their practice. Barron’s rankings are based on three general categories: assets, revenue and quality of practice. Barron’s also examines regulatory records, internal company documents, and 100-plus points of data provided by the firm. Investment performance is not an explicit ranking criterion, because the returns experienced by clients are affected by their appetite for risk. Returns, however, come into play indirectly, as assets under management and revenue rise and fall with an advisor’s ability to deliver results that meet client expectations.
