Sierra Named in 2018 Financial Times “300 Top Registered Investment Advisers in the US”

The firm has been recognized for the second time

Santa Monica, CA (July 24, 2018) -- The Sierra Group of Companies today announced that Sierra Investment Management has again been named to the 2018 FT 300, Financial Times’ list of the top U.S. registered independent investment advisors, assessed on traits desirable to clients.

The fifth edition of the FT 300 is presented as an elite group, not a competitive ranking of one to 300, and areas of consideration include adviser AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record and online accessibility. The formula the FT uses to grade advisers is based on these six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each firm. Over 2000 registered investment advisor (RIA) firms are invited to apply and the final group was chosen from more than 760 applications.

“We at Sierra Investment Management are honored to be included among the advisory firms selected as the FT 300,” said David Wright, co-founder and Managing Director of Sierra. “It’s an incredible accomplishment to be part of such and esteemed group, and a testament to our focus on client service and our conservative, thoughtful approach to investing and financial advice.”

The research for the FT 300 was conducted by Ignites Research, an FT sister publication.
