Bogart Wealth, an independent, fee-only wealth management and Registered Investment Advisory firm, was recently named to multiple lists of top financial advisors and fastest-growing companies in national and industry publications.

In addition, Bogart Wealth ranked #4,192 overall in the 2022 Inc. 5000Inc.

The Forbes Next-Gen Wealth Advisors rankings, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criterion – mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews – and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of four years’ experience, and the algorithm weighs factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass the highest standards of best practices. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.

“Our rankings represent the true role models of the industry,” said R.J. Shook, Founder and President of Shook Research. “We believe our Top Next-Gen Wealth Advisor rankings are an early peek of our future Top Wealth Advisor rankings – say, 10 or more years from now.”

In fact, James Bogart has already been included in Forbes’ Top Wealth Advisor rankings in recent years.
