PHILADELPHIA, August 29, 2016 — Wescott Financial Advisory Group has been named to Barron’s list of the “Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors.” Wescott has appeared among the top 50 advisors for the past eight years, and ranks at number 18 on this year’s prestigious list.

“Our approach to wealth management is one that stands the test of time,” said Grant Rawdin, Wescott’s founder and CEO. “It’s our combination of financial savvy and empathy that makes clients feel confident and empowered. It remains at the core of our business, and this continued industry recognition reinforces that we’ve built a high quality practice for our advisor teams and our clients.”

This year marks Barron’s tenth annual ranking of top independent financial advisors. The publication’s ranking is based on the quality of the advisor’s practice, breadth of services, and additional data provided by each firm.  Taken as a whole, the list shows that RIAs are growing at a rapid pace—with market share increasing 5.4% from 2007 to 2015, and control of 14.7% of the overall advisory market.

“Our independence is key as we continue to roll up our sleeves and grow our firm,”said Rawdin.  “Barron’s ranking digs deep into the value we provide clients and the environment we have created for our advisors, so we are always honored to be named among the top independent practices.”
