Ranking Recognizes the Top Performing Advisors in Each State

WASHINGTON, Sept. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Steward Partners Global Advisory, LLC, an employee-owned, full-service independent partnership associated with Raymond James Financial Services, Inc. (member FINRA/SIPC), today announced that Aaron Brachman, Casey Snyder and Joe Wong have been recognized on the Forbes Next-Gen Best-in-State Advisors list, which honors young top performing advisors in each state.

Out of almost 6,400 nominations, this year's Best-In-State Next-Gen Advisors list spotlights 1,489 top-performing advisors across the country who were nominated by their firms—and then researched, interviewed and assigned a ranking within their respective states.

"Despite their relatively young age, Aaron, Casey and Joe are natural leaders and couldn't be more deserving of this recognition," said Hy Saporta, President at Steward Partners. "They are leading by example both within our firm and the broader industry, and we are proud to support them and their continued success."

He also sits on the technology advisory council at Raymond James, where he and 21 other members influence how and where to invest in technology that impacts nearly 8,000 advisors at Raymond James and Steward Partners.

Joe Wong, CFP®, CRPS® is a Director and Wealth Manager at Steward Partners in Bethesda, MD.

The Forbes Next-Gen Wealth Advisors rankings, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criterion, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of four years' experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass the highest standards of best practices. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.
