To put together this list of top money advisers, we distributed hundreds of surveys to local financial experts, asking: Whom would you trust with your own money? We also did our own research and consulted industry publications. The professionals listed received the strongest recommendations from all sources.
Inclusion on this list doesn’t mean an adviser will be right for you, and omission doesn’t mean an adviser isn’t good. Consider the list one resource, along with referrals from friends and colleagues, for finding financial help.
