RIA Leaders: Top 20 Firms for 2015 Over the years, Financial Planning has been striving to make the annual RIA Leaders list ever more rigorous, weeding out advisory firms that take commission, have registered reps, are owned by big stakeholders. This years ranking calls out the most successful independent, fee-only players who have been able to say no to the big offers -- at least so far.
This interactive tool gives you the ability to evaluate independent broker-dealers. The data was compiled from Financial Planning's annual broker-dealer survey and reflects performance for 2013. Use the pull-down menu to view information on total revenue, fee revenue and commission revenue and more. Click any column head to re-sort the list. Compare up to four firms by checking the box next to the firm's name and clicking the Compare button.
