Allworth Financial Places 34th on Barron’s 2019 Top 50 RIA Firms

SACRAMENTO, Calif., October 4, 2019 – Allworth Financial (“Allworth”), formerly known as Hanson McClain Advisors, has been named to Barron’s 2019 Top 50 RIA Firms. Out of 50 firms that made the 2019 RIA Ranking, Allworth placed 34th.

Barron's

The Barron’s 2019 Top 50 RIA ranking was launched three years ago in recognition of the growth and consolidation occurring in the RIA industry. This year’s ranking has been expanded to 50 spots from last year’s 40.

The Independent advisory industry has grown by leaps and bounds, and the boom of M&A activity in the RIA space has provided many benefits to both clients and advisors alike. The ownership structures of the advisory sector are evolving, and that can be seen with all the M&A activity. According to DeVoe & Co, the number of significant deals has increased from 36 in 2013 to 99 in 2018, and 65 in the first half of 2019 alone.

Allworth has seen significant growth in the last year both organically and through M&A activity. Since taking private equity in partnership with Parthenon Capital Partners (“Parthenon”), Allworth has invested in client-first technology, people, systems and expanding its business model in new and existing markets through both organic growth and M&A activity.

According to Barron’s-2019 Survey Methodology

The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisory firms is proprietary. The rankings are based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses has three major components: assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record.
