Barron’s Annual Survey Ranks HBKS Wealth Advisors Among Elite U.S. RIAs


Again this year, HBKS Wealth Advisors (HBKS) has been recognized as among the nation’s most prominent registered investment advisories (RIAs) by multiple industry surveys. Most recently, Barron’s, one of the most respected financial publications worldwide, has HBKS as the nation’s 82nd ranked firm in its survey of independent U.S. RIAs. The industry estimates a total of nearly 15,000 RIAs in the U.S. as of 2021, an increase of more than 40 percent since 2012.

According to the publication, its rankings of independent advisory companies “are based on assets managed by the firms, technology spending, staff diversity, succession planning, and other metrics.

“The goal is to shine a spotlight on the nation’s best financial advisors, with an eye toward raising standards in the industry,” Barron’s editors wrote. “The rankings serve two distinct types of Barron’s readers. For wealth management professionals, they serve as an industry scorecard. For investors, the rankings are a tool that can help in the process of finding financial guidance.”

“We are honored to be recognized as a top U.S. financial advisory,” noted HBK Managing Principal and CEO Christopher M. Allegretti. “It’s a tribute to our commitment to our clients’ financial success and always keeping their interests our primary concern.”

August 2022 releases by Financial Advisor Magazine and Accounting Today also included HBKS among the top U.S. RIAs.
