Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors

John Lynch, managing director (Lynch Retirement Investment Group), has been named to the 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2012, 2011 and 2010 lists of Barron’s Top 1,200 Financial Advisors. What does it take to get to the top?


“Barron’s ranks advisors according to assets under management, revenues the advisors generate for their firms, quality of the practice and other factors. The top 1,200 hail from a mix of big Wall Street firms and smaller independent operations,” according to Barron’s.


“ ... The typical member is age 52 and has been in the industry 25 years. In that time, he or she has experienced just about everything you could imagine: inflation, deflation, stagflation, dot-com bubbles, credit bubbles, tremendous rallies and devastating drops.” But the goal is usually the same: “to position their clients to withstand whatever shocks the financial markets and global economy deliver next.” – An excerpt from Barron’s, The Top 1,200 Advisors, State by State, February 21, 2011.
