Top bank advisers by fee business
Our popular BIC Top 50 ranks the top bank advisers on six variables combined into a weighted average. Those variables include: (1) 2015 AUM; (2) trailing-12 production; (3) % change in AUM from previous year; (4) % change in trailing-12; (5) amount of fee-based business; and (6) ratio of production-per-AUM. As usual, we also listed The Next 50, a list of the advisers who ranked 51 through 100 in our analysis.
Here we take a fresh look at all 100 advisers (The Top 50 and The Next 50) and list the top 25 based on solely on the percentage of last year's production that came from fees. In cases of ties, we listed them here by their rank on our original lists, which is the number after their names.
