Important Notices and Disclosures

1. SURVEY RESULTS AND TESTIMONIALS MAY NOT BE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE EXPERIENCE OF OTHER CUSTOMERS AND ARE NO GUARANTEE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE OR SUCCESS. The FA-IQ Service Awards are based on the votes of financial advisors who participated in a survey from April to June, 2022 and winners were announced on September 28, 2022. 742 advisors cast ballots. Respondents represented a cross-section of channels and practice sizes: 61 percent came from broker-dealers (including 40 percent from independent and regional BDs, 19 percent from wirehouses, and 2 percent from bank-based B-Ds). Another 32 percent of voters hail from independent RIAs, and 4 percent from insurance-linked brokerages. Managers were split in three categories: Large managers—those with $100 billion or more in mutual fund and/or ETF assets (32 managers in this group), Midsize managers—those with between $20 billion and $100 billion in mutual fund and/or ETF assets (51 managers in this group), and Boutique managers—those with at least $4 billion, but less than $20 billion in fund and/or ETF assets (60 managers in this group). In rating asset managers, advisors first identified the companies with which they work or have worked. Then advisors selected which product providers they considered excellent in each the large- mid- and boutique-sized cohorts. For recordkeepers and Erisa law firms, FA-IQ relied on votes from all advisors, but especially those with significant DC plan business. In all, 51 recordkeepers, 31 target-date fund providers and 40 law firms received votes. Ignites Research, an FA-IQ affiliate, compiled the votes and oversaw these awards.
