Certified Advisory Corp of CFG Debuts
on the CNBC Top100 List!

For the fourth year in a row, CNBC unveiled its ranking of the top 100 financial advisory firms in the U.S. We are honored to announce that Certified Advisory Corp of Certified Financial Group has been included!

The CNBC FA 100 recognizes those advisory firms that best help clients navigate their financial lives.

CNBC enlisted data provider AccuPoint Solutions to assist with the ranking of registered investment advisors for this year’s FA 100 list.     

The methodology consisted of first analyzing a variety of core data points from AccuPoint Solutions’ proprietary database of registered investment advisors. This analysis started with an initial list of 39,818 RIA firms from the Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory database. Through a process, the list was eventually cut to 904 RIAs, with those firms meeting CNBC’s proprietary criteria.
