Jim Ferrare was named to this year’s 2019 Best-In-State Wealth Advisors list by Forbes. Jim appeared on this list in 2018, as well. The list spotlights the top performing wealth advisors across the country. Each state’s list is determined by SHOOK research, an algorithm based on qualitative and quantitative criteria including in-person interviews, candidate’s industry experience, community involvement, client retention data and revenue trends. The theory is, “If we’re going to recommend advisors to the public, we have to make sure every advisor is high quality. When we meet with an advisor [in person or on the telephone] we are thinking to ourselves ‘is this someone we would recommend to a friend or family member?’” said R.J. Shook, president of SHOOK Research in a contributor post on Forbes.
