The Top Women Wealth Advisors’ algorithm is based on criteria, including a minimum of seven years of experience, a minimum of $1 million in production, and the weighing of factors including revenue trends, AUM, compliance records, industry experience, and best. SHOOK Research also employs an opinion-based weighting system that prioritizes its preferred “best practices,” which include business models, activities, processes, and structure. Overall, 2,273 advisors were considered and 200 (7.3 percent of candidates) were recognized.
