The ranking of Forbes' Top Women Wealth Advisors(1) is based on an algorithm of qualitative and quantitative criteria, including a minimum of seven years of experience, a minimum of $1 million in production, and the weighing of factors including revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience, and best practices (gathered through telephone and in-person due-diligence interviews). SHOOK Research also employs an opinion-based weighting system that prioritizes its preferred "best practices," which include business models, activities, processes, and structure.
