One of the core reasons I started the company was because financial literacy and empowerment was lacking in the US education system and big firms made you believe unless you had a lot of investable assets, finding conflict-free financial advice was impossible. Investopedia is a fantastic website full of educational resources and is doing such great work to bridge the financial literacy gap across the country. We are honored to be included in their 2021 top 100 list of financial advisors who are breaking barriers and pushing the ball forward in terms of financial literacy and empowerment of financial education.
The Investopedia 100 celebrates financial advisors who are making significant contributions to critical conversations about financial literacy, investing strategies, life-stage planning and wealth management. With more than 100,000 independent financial advisors in the U.S., the Investopedia 100 spotlights the country’s most engaged, influential, and educational advisors. Brad Sherman has been named to this list for the third year in a row.
Investopedia is the world’s leading source of financial content on the web. They help investors understand financial concepts, improve investing skills, and learn how to manage their money.
Investopedia’s proprietary methodology focuses on awarding financial advisors who have demonstrated a top-of-the-industry ability to reach the largest and most diverse financial and investing audience. That reach is measured by the impact and quality of the advisor’s published work, public appearances, online following, and commitment to financial literacy across diverse communities. The 2021 Investopedia 100 also heavily weighed peer-to-peer nominations, highlighting the most influential advisors who were recommended by their peers. We receive no compensation from placing advisors on our list, nor does an advisor’s appearance on our list constitute an individual endorsement by Investopedia of such advisor.
