With 2,051 votes tallied, AdvisorOne readers selected the 10 best wealth manager logos out of 25 finalists. The finalists were selected by the editorial staff of the Investment Advisor Group—the editors and art directors of Investment Advisor and Research magazines and AdvisorOne. The winners comprised firms with staff sizes as big as 227 down to just one, but all came up big regarding their logos’ appeal to readers, and therefore, potential clients.
The intent of our original slideshow (see “Our 20 Favorite Top Wealth Manager Logos,”) and the subsequent readers’ poll was to help educate advisors on one way to stand out to both current clients and prospects, immediately and directly, in their collateral marketing material—and we hope this has helped out a bit.
You can find detailed information on some of these firms, and other helpful information, at AdvisorOne.com’s 2012 Top Wealth Managers landing page.
Of course, you may disagree with the readers’ choices, so feel free to comment by emailing us at WealthManagerLogos@sbmedia.com.
