FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2012 Detroit Five Star Wealth Managers Announced
Area Wealth Managers Qualify for Award Based on Research
Minneapolis, June 1, 2012 - Five Star Professional has named the Detroit area recipients of the 2012 Five Star Wealth Manager award. The award winners appear in a special section in the June issue of HOUR Detroit and the July/August issue of DBusiness.
Five Star Professional partnered with HOUR Detroit and DBusiness to find wealth managers who satisfy 10 objective eligibility and evaluation criteria that are associated with wealth managers who provide quality services to their clients. Fewer than seven percent of the 10,650 wealth managers in the Detroit area were selected.
Award candidates were identified by one of three sources: firm nomination, peer nomination or pre-qualification. Five Star Professional relied on internal and external research data, including a survey to more than 3,000 registered financial services professionals and all identified financial service companies in the Detroit area that are registered with FINRA or the SEC. Survey recipients were asked to nominate wealth managers they felt were worthy of consideration for the Five Star Wealth Manager award. Each wealth manager was reviewed for disciplinary actions, customer complaints and regulatory actions as reported by regulatory agencies.
Five Star Professional conducts market-specific research throughout the U.S. and Canada to identify service professionals who provide quality services to their clients. Five Star Professional joins forces with city and regional magazines to make the research results available to consumers in more than 45 markets across the United States and now Canada. Five Star Professional was founded in 2003 and is based in Minneapolis. For more information, go to: www.fivestarprofessional.com
