The results are in: Investment Advisor magazine polled independent investment advisors to determine the top broker-dealers (BDs) for 2013. With more than 4,000 votes counted, four broker-dealers rose to the top.
The BDs were ranked in four categories based on the number of producing representatives. The annual poll, now in its 23rd year, is overseen by Investment Advisor’s editorial staff. Credentialed voters are asked to rate their own broker-dealers in 15 different categories. The BDs that receive the highest average rating from their representatives are named Broker-Dealers of the Year.
