I would like to thank all of my clients for placing their trust and confidence in me in managing their assets. Most of my clients have been with me for many years and I take great pride in serving them.

Five Star Professional is pleased to announce John Tan, LPL Financial, has been chosen as one of Los Angeles’ Five Star Wealth Managers for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and now 2017.

It’s a great feeling to be recognized all of these years for consistently providing the service my clients have come to expect. This award keeps me inspired to do the very best for my clients and to continually strive to exceed their expectations,” said John Tan.

Five Star Professional partners with Los Angeles magazine to recognize a select group of Los Angeles-area wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients. John Tan is featured, along with other award winners, in a special section of the January issue.

“I would like to thank all of my clients for placing their trust and confidence in me in managing their assets.

The Five Star Wealth Manager award program is the largest and most widely published wealth manager award program in the financial services industry. The award is based on a rigorous, multifaceted research methodology, which incorporates input from peers and firm leaders along with client retention rates, industry experience and a thorough regulatory history review.

“The research behind this award is extensive with each wealth manager being thoroughly vetted from numerous angles. We are proud to showcase these distinguished professionals,” stated Jonathan Wesser, Research Director, Five Star Professional.

When asked why he became a wealth manager, John Tan replied, “Growing up, my parents taught me the value of what’s right and wrong. After some family members were victimized financially, I changed my career path to work in the securities industry and to have the integrity, respect, and honor that many like my family members seek. I’ve made this a code to live by and continue to run my practice guided by these three traits.”
