1Wells Fargo Advisors is not a legal or tax advisor. You should consult with your attorney, accountant and/or estate planner before taking any action.
2The Premier Advisor distinction is held by a select group of Financial Advisors within Wells Fargo Advisors as measured by completion of educational components, business production based on either of the past two years, and professionalism. Additional criteria, including length of service, may also be used to determine recipients.
3The Barron's Top 1,200 State By State Advisors ratings are based on the previous year's assets under management, revenue generated for the advisors' firms, and the quality of the advisors' practice. Investment performance isn't an explicit factor because clients have varied goals and risk tolerances. Self-completed questionnaire was used for the rating. This rating is not related to the quality of the investment advice and based solely on the disclosed criteria.
