The Financial Services Network (The Network) proudly announced today Network advisor Chris Giordano has been named to Forbes magazine’s 2021 Best-In-State Wealth Advisors.
“Giordano Wealth Management Group (GWMG) is an outstanding example of an exceptional advisor that provides the highest level of service to help clients pursue their individual financial goals,” said Daxs Stadjuhar, Managing Partner, The Financial Services Network. “Congratulations to Chris, and his extended team, on receiving this remarkable recognition and acknowledgement.”
Giordano founded GWMG over 11 years ago with the goal of partnering with clients to provide a rewarding financial relationship. Serving over 300 families representing over 500 clients, the firm continues to grow thoughtfully. “It is truly fulfilling to be named a top advisor by Forbes. This year, especially, I can think of no greater honor than being recognized for the trust clients have placed in us as we focus on exceeding their expectations.”
Moreover, this recognition is a testament to the respect Chris has garnered from his peers. Chris’ refined service model and dedication to providing clients with an elevated client experience has resulted in his selection, as successor, by multiple independent financial advisors. Acquiring 2 practices to date, GWMG notably acquired one of these offices in the remarkably challenging second half of 2020.
The Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisor ranking, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on in-person and telephone due diligence meetings and a ranking algorithm that includes: client retention, industry experience, review of compliance records, firm nominations; and quantitative criteria, including: assets under management and revenue generated for their firms. Portfolio performance is not a criterion due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK Research receives a fee in exchange for rankings
