NEW YORK: Today, the FT publishes the 2015 edition of the Financial Times 400 Top Financial Advisers, which recognises the top financial advisers at broker-dealers across the US. The FT 400 was developed in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides specialised content on asset management. The full list, along with deep insight into the financial advisory space, is available to download at this link.
The top advisers hail from 43 states and Washington, D.C., and represent 23 different brokerage firms, including Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch, which have the most advisers on the list. The average financial adviser in the FT 400 has 26 years of experience and manages $1.7 billion worth of assets. Less than three-quarters of the prior year’s FT 400 returned to this year’s list, which is a sign of how difficult the job of financial adviser has become.
Other changes to the FT’s 465-strong European editorial team include:
Roula Khalaf, foreign editor and assistant editor at the FT, said: “The FT’s European coverage has been a must-read for world leaders since our first international edition in 1979, and these appointments demonstrate our commitment to continue setting the agenda in this important region. The creation of the European diplomatic editor role recognises new challenges in European diplomacy and growing questions about the future of the EU.”
