WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
Convergent Wealth Advisors has announced that two of the firm’s advisors were included in the top twenty advisors on the Barron’s 2014 ranking of the nation’s Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors. Dave Zier, Chief Executive Officer, was ranked #5 for Convergent’s sixth consecutive appearance on this list, and making his debut, David Kahn, Managing Director, was ranked #18.
“The Barron’s list is one of the most significant accolades an advisor can receive – and one of the most coveted,” says Douglas Wolford, Convergent President & Chief Operating Officer. “And for us to receive two spots in the top twenty is like winning the Super Bowl and the World Series at the same time.”
“This Barron’s ranking highlights Convergent’s commitment to build and preserve client relationships. Having advisors from both our East and West Coast offices further demonstrates our growing national footprint,” states CEO Dave Zier, who landed his fifth consecutive ranking in the top ten. David Kahn, Managing Director in the firm’s Los Angeles office adds, “At Convergent, we strive to provide our clients with objective advice, complete transparency, and insightful wealth management solutions tailored to their individual needs. We aim to bring to our clients a superior wealth management experience that we believe is embraced by our firm philosophy of ‘Invest well. Manage well. Live well.’”
Volume of assets overseen, revenues generated for the firm, and the quality of the advisor’s practice are all ranking criteria for this list.
