“The Best Practices winners truly approach their businesses as CEOs and not just as advisers,” said Mark Bruno, associate publisher at InvestmentNews and head of InvestmentNews Research. “All of these firms are run by people with a long-term vision for their organization – and an ongoing commitment to improving and enhancing their businesses. Their accomplishments and stories will help educate, inform and influence the growth of this industry.”
To identify the 2016 Best Practices Award winners, InvestmentNews Research created composite scores that examined the rate of growth, profitability and productivity levels for all of the participants in the 2016 InvestmentNews Financial Performance Study. The “Best Practices” were those who ranked among the top-quartile of all participants; in addition, the final firms were selected after qualitative interviews conducted by the InvestmentNews Best Practices Committee.
“We are humbled to be recognized as one of the 2016 Best Practices for our innovative approach and by the confidence our clients, coworkers and referral sources place in us,” said Greg Herman, LBMC Investment Advisors Managing Partner. “ We believe our success can be attributed to putting the client’s interest first, retaining our employee talent, interacting with clients on a fee and not commission basis, avoiding the investment market noise of the day as well as our geography and strong positioning of LBMC as a Firm.”
