Investment Advisor announced Monday, August 30, the results of its 20th annual readers’ poll for the 2010 Broker/Dealers of the Year. Cambridge Investment Research, The Capital Financial Group/H. Beck, Geneos Wealth Management and Prospera Financial all came out on top in their respective categories.
Nearly 5,000 voters in this annual balloting confirmed their choices of affiliation by giving high ratings to their own independent B/Ds. In voting overseen each year since 1991 by Investment Advisor’s editorial staff, credentialed voters are asked to rate their own broker/dealers in 15 different categories; those B/Ds that receive the highest average rating from their reps are named Broker/Dealers of the Year in four divisions based on their number of producing reps.
In addition, the leaders of the four winning B/Ds constitute a special broker/dealer advisory board at Investment Advisor for the year and are featured in an extensive cover story in the September issue of the magazine, which in 2010 marks its 30th year of publication.
The 2010 Broker/Dealers of the year are:
