All members must apply every year to continue their affiliation with the Million Dollar Round Table. Third-party rankings and recognitions are no guarantee of future investment success and do not ensure that a client or prospective client will experience a higher level of performance or results. 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.

The FIVE STAR Wealth Manager list is created by Crescendo Business Services LLC (dba Five Star Professional).

Favorable and unfavorable evaluations are included in the score.

The Five Star award is not indicative of the wealth managers' future performance. Wealth managers may or may not use discretion in their practice and therefore may not manage their clients' assets. Working with a FIVE STAR Wealth Manager or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success, nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment by Five Star Professional in the future. The inclusion of the wealth manager on the Five Star Wealth Manager list should not be construed as an endorsement of the wealth manager by Five Star Professional or the magazine. Wealth managers do not pay a fee to be considered or placed on the final list of Five Star Wealth Managers, however, award winners may purchase additional profile ad space or promotional products. Five Star Professional is not an advisory firm.
