Our goal is to make quality financial planning and our award-winning investment management services available to as many families as possible
Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
Ric Edelman, the renowned financial advisor, author and talk show host, is also the most accessible advisor for everyday Americans, according to Barron’s annual Top 100 Financial Advisors list.
The typical advisor on Barron’s 2011 list, released April 18, primarily serves high-net-worth clients with an average account size of $26 million and a net worth of $54 million. Many of the advisors on the list have million-dollar minimums. But Edelman welcomes everyone who needs his help, from investors with seven or eight figures to invest, as well as those with just $50,000.
“Our goal is to make quality financial planning and our award-winning investment management services available to as many families as possible,” said Edelman. “While we do serve many millionaires, the majority of our clients don’t fall into that ultra high-net-worth category. Most are middle class families saving for college and building their retirement nest egg. We take pride in helping them plan for a secure financial future.”
Edelman, a perennial top advisor in Barron’s rankings, eschews the $1 million-or-more account minimum maintained by many firms in the industry, and said he is pleased to see that his average account size is the smallest of the Top 100 advisors.
