* To compile the list, multiple variables were used and combined into a weighted average. Specifically, six factors were used: (1) total team assets under management; (2) growth of team assets; (3) growth of team annual production; (4) average production per advisor; (5) number of full-time advisors the program manager directly supervises; and (6) number of licensed branch employees (LBE) under their supervision. The number of LBEs didn't get as much weight as the other variables. Also, in some cases, estimates of production-per-advisor were used by dividing team production by the average number of advisors year-over-year. The ranking may not be representative of any one client's experience, is not an endorsement, and is not indicative of advisor's future performance. Neither Raymond James nor any of its Financial Advisors pay a fee in exchange for this award/rating. BIC is not affiliated with Raymond James.
