We examine RIA accounts that do not include financial planning as one of their core services, as well as companies that are subsidiaries of brokers, dealers, and banks. Finally, we examine firms that act primarily as back-end service providers for consulting teams. Once that’s all done, we look at the performance of eligible companies in 2022 across three categories: percentage growth in assets under management, cash growth in assets under management, and percentage growth in employees. We combine these numbers into a single number known as the “growth factor”. No one gets paid or compensated for their appearance, and neither do we.
