Omaha, Nebraska June 28, 2018: Bridges Investment Management has been named as one of the Financial Times Top 300 Financial Advisers in America. The firm is one of just two Nebraska-based firms to be recognized for this prestigious honor.
This is the sixth annual listing of Top Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) ranked by the Financial Times. The publication considers these firms to be the very best across the U.S. In order to qualify, RIAs must be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and have a minimum of $300 million or more in assets under management (AUM). Of the more than 2,000 US RIAs who were invited to participate in the ranking, approximately 650 RIA firms qualified, which means only about 48 percent of them made the list.
To prepare the rankings, Financial Times grades advisers based on six criteria and then calculates a score for each company. Qualifying firms were evaluated based on AUM, asset growth, years in existence, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record, and online accessibility. AUM and asset growth count for roughly 80 percent to 85 percent of each company’s score.
