    Forbes America's Top RIA Firms (2022)*

    *Awards and recognitions by unaffiliated publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that the client will experience a certain level of results if Telemus Capital, LLC (“Telemus”) is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should they be construed as a current or past endorsement of Telemus or its representatives by any of its clients. Rankings published by magazines and others are generally based on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. Data provided by SHOOK ® Research, LLC. Data as of 12/31/21. America’s Top Registered Investment Advisor Firms ranking was developed by SHOOK Research and is based on in-person, virtual and telephone due diligence meetings and a ranking algorithm that includes: a measure of best practices, client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Investment performance is not a criterion because client objectives and risk tolerance vary, and advisors rarely have audited performance reports. Neither SHOOK nor Forbes receive compensation in exchange for its Registered Investment Advisor Firm placements or rankings, which are determined independently (see methodology above). However Telemus does pay a fee to use the awards promotional materials. Participation in this directory is limited to ranked firms; once placed on a ranking, firms may choose to pay fees to Forbes and Shook for premium listing features as indicated by highlighted names. SHOOK’s research and rankings provide opinions intended to help investors choose the right financial advisor or firm and not indicative of future performance or representative of any one client’s experience. Investors must carefully choose the right advisor or firm for their own situation and perform their own due diligence. Past performance is not an indication of future results.

Barron’s verifies that data with the advisors’ firms and with regulatory databases and then apply their rankings formula to the data to generate a ranking. The formula features three major categories of calculations: (1) Assets (2) Revenue (3) Quality of practice. In each of those categories we do multiple subcalculations. For instance, Barron’s take into account not just the amount of assets an advisor manages, but also the type of assets—are they private-wealth assets or institutional? If they’re institutional, are they for a foundation or an endowment, or are they corporate assets? Barron’s measures the growth of advisors’ practices and their client retention. Barron’s also consider a wide range of qualitative factors, including the advisors’ experience, their advanced degrees and industry designations, the size, shape, and diversity of their teams, their charitable and philanthropic work and, of course, their compliance records. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings. Telemus did not pay a fee for inclusion on this list.

    Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pa., produces the ranking of Cool Places to Work in Michigan for Crain's. Any Michigan company with at least 15 employees can participate. First, the employer provided detailed information on its benefits and policies; next, its employees answered questions about workplace culture, company leadership and other aspects of work in a confidential, 77-question survey. Best Companies Group uses a two-part survey process to produce a detailed set of data that enables our analysts to determine the strengths and opportunities of the participating organizations. The survey, which sought to determine, among other things, whether employees understand the long-term strategy of the company and whether they feel they have opportunities to advance within its ranks, accounted for 75 percent of the final ranking. The employer Benefits and Policies Questionnaire is worth approximately 25 percent of the overall score. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final rankings. Companies paid for the survey; not all companies that applied were chosen as a cool workplace.
