Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 22, 2008
Robert Levitt, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Levitt Capital Management LLC, based here, has been named as one of the country's top 250 wealth advisors by Worth magazine in its annual October/November issue on newsstands October 21, 2008.
Commenting on being selected as a top wealth advisor, Mr. Levitt said, "We have worked tirelessly traveling around the world seeking out investments for our clients, so it is very gratifying to be recognized for the tremendous effort we put forth everyday as the steward's of our clients wealth and financial future. We are proud to have made the list of the top 250 wealth advisors in the country at a time of such challenging economic times, and particularly pleased as only one of two from Boca Raton. It's an honor to be chosen among the thousands of financial advisors in the country by such a prestigious magazine as Worth."
The Top 250 Methodology as published by Worth:
"The process begins with an invitation to our readers to nominate those advisors who represent the absolute best of their profession. We also solicit nominations from banks, wealth management and investment firms, and industry associations. Nominated advisors and others who wish to participate then complete a detailed online questionnaire in which they provide their educational and professional credentials and discuss their approaches to customer service, portfolio management, and risk.
"Based on the quality of these responses and on each applicant's insights into the current investment climate, Worth editors make the selections. Those advisors who take the time and space to fully explain a strategy or an opinion typically do well. We assume that they communicate in a similarly clear, thorough fashion with their clients. Those who demonstrate a nuanced understanding of the global markets, alternative investments and the current economic climate also score well. Following the completion of a preliminary list, the final step involves confirming, to the extent possible, that the information the advisors provided is accurate and truthful. In the end, we feel confident in our choices. Those listed impress us with their expertise, dedication and enthusiasm."
