Boston 2011 Five Star Wealth Managers

Here they are.

Meet your

We surveyed consumers and financial services professionals to find wealth managers in the Boston area who scored highest in overall satisfaction.

ell over half of the consumer responses in the Boston area indicated it is difficult to find a wealth manager they trust and rely on.(1) Wealth managers, broadly defined, are those individuals who help you manage your financial world and/or implement aspects of your financial strategies. Common examples of wealth managers are financial advisors, financial planners, investment advisors, tax advisors, estate planning attorneys, etc. Wit h more t han 20,000 we a lt h managers(2) in the Boston area, how do you find someone who listens to you, represents your interests and operates with an emphasis on integrity and service? Boston magazine can help. The magazine formed a partnership with Crescendo Business Services to find out which wealth managers scored highest in overall satisfaction. The Selection Process

W

Both positive and negative evaluations were included in the scoring, and only wealth managers with more than five years of experience in the financial services industry were considered. Next, each wealth manager was reviewed for regulatory actions, civil judicial actions and customer complaints as reported by FINRA, the SEC, the State Board of Accountancy and the State Bar. Then, before finalizing the list, wealth managers were reviewed by a blue ribbon panel comprised of individuals from within the financial services industry. Although panelist comments were incorporated into the final score, safeguards were built into the review process to reduce the ability of panel members to influence the composition of the final list on the basis of company affiliation. An Elite Award

R esea rch D ecl a r at ion s:

As with any research or recognition program, it is important that we provide you the following declarations:

· The 2011 Five STaR Wealth Managers do not pay a fee to be included in the research or the final list of Five STaR Wealth Managers. · The overall evaluation score of a wealth manager reflects an average of all respondents and may not be representative of any one client's experience. · The FIVE STAR Award is not indicative of the wealth manager's future performance.

· Wealth managers may or may not use discretion in their practice and therefore may not manage their clients' assets.

Crescendo administered a survey, by mail and phone, to approximately 1 in 4 highnet-worth households (3) (over 149,000 households) and all identified FINRA registered representatives (over 17,200 financial services professionals) within the Boston area. On the surveys, recipients were asked to evaluate only wealth managers whom they know through personal experience and to evaluate them based upon nine criteria: customer ser vice, integrity, knowledge/expertise, communication, value for fee charged, meeting of financial objectives, post-sale service, quality of recommendations and overall satisfaction.

(1) (2)

The resulting list of 2011 FIVE STAR Wealth Managers is an elite group, representing less than 3 percent of the wealth managers in the Boston area. For a more user-friendly listing, wealth managers have been grouped based upon their primary financial service. Each wealth manager was also able to list up to three additional financial services that they provide their clients. Although this list will certainly be a useful tool for anyone looking for help in managing their financial world or implementing aspects of their financial strategies, it should not be considered exhaustive. Undoubtedly, there are many other excellent wealth managers who, for one reason or another, are not on this year's list.

· The inclusion of a wealth manager on the FIVE STAR Wealth Manager list should not be construed as an endorsement of the wealth manager by Crescendo Business Services or Boston magazine.

· Working with a FIVE STAR Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Crescendo in the future.

· The research process for the FIVE STAR Wealth Manager Program, managed by QMI Research, incorporates a statistically valid sample in order to identify the wealth managers in the local market that score highest in overall satisfaction. QMI Res e arch do es not include we a lt h managers on the list unless their score is statistically valid. At least 50 percent of the we a lt h m an age rs i n t h e m ar ke t h ave a statistically valid score.
