Awards Disclosures

General Disclosure 

*Please Note: Limitations. Neither rankings nor recognitions by unaffiliated rating services, publications, media, or other organizations, should be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Wealthspire is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser. Rankings are generally limited to participating advisers (see participation criteria/methodology). Unless expressly indicated to the contrary, Wealthspire did not pay a fee to be included on any such ranking. No ranking or recognition should be construed as a current or past endorsement of Wealthspire by any of its clients. 

Awards, rankings, and other forms of recognition are not indicative of Wealthspire’s or its advisors’ future performance.

The firm never pays a fee for inclusion in any such list. Some lists, such as the Advisory HQ, are determined without any input from Wealthspire Advisors and others require completion of an application or survey. Third-party rankings and recognition from rating services or publications are no guarantee of future investment success. These ratings should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client nor are they representative of any one client’s evaluation of the firm.

  • Citywire – Fastest Growing RIA in NY – 2022 – Citywire uses only publicly reported numbers. Only firms that report having a significant number of financial planning clients were considered to make sure only financial planning-oriented RIAs were considered and not money managers. Citywire only considered RIAs that are not affiliated on a firm level with a broker-dealer or other institution (though their employees may be dually registered). Citywire then looked at growth in 2021 across three categories: percentage growth in AUM, monetary growth in AUM, and percentage growth in employees. Combining these into a single numerical measure of growth the generated their list.
