* The formula the FT uses to grade advisers is based on six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each adviser. The factors are: 1. Assets under management can signal experience managing money and client trust. 2. AUM growth rate (we look at both one-year and two-year growth rates) can be taken as a proxy for performance, asset retention and ability to generate new business. 3. Years of experience indicate experience managing assets in different economic and interest-rate environments. 4. Compliance record provides evidence of past client disputes. A string of complaints could signal problems. 5. Industry certifications (CFA, CFP, etc.) demonstrate technical and industry knowledge and obtaining these designations shows a professional commitment to investment skills. 6. Online accessibility illustrates commitment to providing investors with easy access and transparent contact information. Assets under management accounted for an average of 70 per cent of each adviser's score. AUM growth rate accounted for an average of 17 per cent.
