PHILADELPHIA, September 29, 2020 – Wescott Financial Advisory Group is proud to announce Founder and CEO Grant Rawdin’s recognition on Barron’s 2020 Top 100 Independent Advisors in the U.S. list, ranking him 34th. A member of Barron’s Hall of Fame, this is the 11th year of Rawdin and Wescott’s inclusion. Barron’s Top 100 Independent Advisor ranking is based on a number of factors including investment assets overseen and the quality of the advisor’s practices. Rawdin also ranks #1 in Pennsylvania on their 2020 Top Advisor Ranking by State.
“For over 30 years, we at Wescott have remained committed to meeting the unique needs of each client and providing them with the expertise required to grow their assets. Through our proprietary Life-Minded Wealth® financial planning process, we take a holistic approach in guiding our clients through financial complexities and planning to ultimately help them achieve their financial and personal goals,” said Founder and CEO, Grant Rawdin, J.D., CFP®. “I share this recognition with the entirety of the Wescott team, a group of dedicated and dynamic wealth management professionals who devote themselves to providing meaningful, impactful guidance to our clients and their families.”
Rawdin founded Wescott in 1987, while providing personal financial services to his legal clients as a tax and business attorney with Duane Morris LLP. Over three decades later, Wescott has grown to manage over $2 billion in assets under management. As one of Barron’s highest performing independent financial advisors, Rawdin and the Wescott Team continue to showcase this growth mindset through the creation of ESG investment offerings and PerfectScore®, Wescott’s trademarked financial planning process. It was designed to ensure that Wescott advisors utilize all of the firm’s tools and capabilities to organize, centralize and zero in on all of the important financial and personal factors that are integral to a client’s successful wealth management strategy. Another illustration of this evolution is that in 2020, Wescott was named a Certified B Corporation by the nonprofit B Lab. The B Corp Certification recognizes businesses that incorporate all of their stakeholders, including workers, customers, suppliers, communities and the environment, into their day-to-day operations and corporate governance.
“At Wescott, we believe great firms are built on an ability to serve clients’ evolving, often complex, financial needs, while building lasting relationships and delivering strong results. We appreciate Barron’s consistent recognition of the quality of our service and our growth,” Rawdin emphasized. “As the team looks ahead to the next decade, we are excited to watch the evolution of our firm as we navigate the changing landscape- from technology to new industry standards.”
