Financial Times has distinguished Convergent Wealth Advisors as one of the Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers in the U.S. in the 2014 list. This firm acknowledgment follows other recent accolades from publications such as Barron’s and Forbes, further solidifying Convergent’s strong presence in the wealth management space. According to the Financial Times, demand for high-caliber registered investment advisors is expected to continue to rise and mature as managing wealth becomes more complex.
