Branch Manager Awards logo June 2017
Top 100
In an industry beset by regulatory and technological upheaval, branch managers have their work cut out for them.

Yet like elite coaches of winning teams, the best managers continue to perform, recruiting top talent in the industry and grooming their advisers to excel.

To recognize their contributions to the success of advisers and firms, On Wall Street annually highlights the industry's top 100 branch managers. This year's list was derived from nominations received from the field. Those suggestions were then narrowed by a panel of judges: Bill Butterfield, research analyst at Aite Group; David Lo, head of US Client Insight at Scorpio Partnership; and Kenton Shirk, director at Cerulli Associates.

Scroll through to see the top 100 honorees. The top 10 honorees will be unveiled soon.
