Fourth annual awards program recognizes firms for excellence in practice management, financial performance, & innovation

CLEVELAND–(BUSINESS WIRE)–InvestmentNews named Capital Advisors, Ltd. as 1 of 12 winners of the 2016 Best Practices Awards, an important initiative that recognizes the top-performing and most innovative firms in the financial advice industry. The 12 winners of the InvestmentNews Best Practices Awards were identified through their participation in the 2016 Financial Performance Study of Advisory Firms, and recognized at The Best Practices Award and Workshop at the New York Athletic Club in New York City, on October 18th.

“The firms that have seen the most growth are those that have been the most strategically managed,” said Mark Bruno, Associate Publisher of InvestmentNews. “Capital Advisors is one of those firms, and its leaders executed on their strategic plans more effectively than most firms in the industry. They are an excellent example of how – and why – professionally run wealth management firms are out-performing and well-positioned for long-term success.”

“We are honored to be considered amongst some of the finest wealth management firms in the country,” said Neil Waxman, Managing Director, Capital Advisors, Ltd. “To my mind, recognition of best practice is some of the highest praise we can attain, because it confirms what our team works so diligently to achieve: commitment to excellence, prudence, and consistency in bringing to bear a superior level of service to our clients.”

To identify the 2016 Best Practices Award winners, InvestmentNews Research created composite scores that examined the rate of growth, profitability and productivity levels for all the participants in the 2016 InvestmentNews Financial Performance Study. The firms classified as having “Best Practices” were those who ranked among the top-quartile of all participants; however, a number were selected for extensive qualitative interviews conducted by the InvestmentNews Best Practices Committee, in order to select the 12 winners.

This is the fourth consecutive year that InvestmentNews has recognized the industry’s top-performing firms as part of the Best Practices program. All of the firms honored have participated in InvestmentNews’ primary benchmarking studies: The Advisers Compensation & Staffing Study, The Financial Performance Study of Advisory Firms and The Adviser Technology Study.
