Barron’s selected Aspirant for its 2022 Top Independent RIA List. We are honored to be included in this ranking, which is Barron’s view of the best 100 independent RIA firms based on numerous criteria from a detailed questionnaire.
Barron’s annual ranking of independent advisory companies is based on assets managed by the firms, technology spending, staff diversity, succession planning and other metrics. Aspiriant moved up a spot in the ranking this year, from 28 to 27 out of 100 firms.
“Our ranking as a top-rated independent wealth management firm reflects our deep commitment to independence through our ownership model, serving clients with distinction and our diversity, inclusion and belonging initiatives,” said Aspiriant CEO Rob Francais.
Importantly, our 100% employee-owned, independent ownership model attracts and retains exceptionally talented people and gives them the opportunity to grow with the firm. Our business model also allows for the alignment of interests between our advisors, the clients we serve, and other wealth management firms that fold into Aspiriant.
Barron’s rankings can help individuals and families in the process of finding the right financial advisor. Our dedicated wealth managers, holding a wide range of professional designations, are committed to serving multigenerational families who want to connect their financial goals with their values through our Total Wealth Management and Exclusive Family Office services.
