Top 100 bank advisers: Who's most profitable?
We took a new look at this year's top advisers and re-ranked them based solely their production per AUM. For the original list, this was one of six metrics we used to determine the ranking. The other five were: assets under management; trailing-12 production; percent change in AUM from previous year; percent change in production and amount of fee-based business.
Since the initial list, we have broken out some of the individual stats for fresh looks of our top advisers. You can see rankings based solely on assets under management, as well as fee-based business and tenure in the industry.
For this list, there were some very close results, sometimes within hundredths of a percentage point. For that reason, we took the ranking category to three decimal points when necessary. In one case, there was still a tie (in that case, instead of going to 4 decimal points, we just called it a tie.)
