MILLION DOLLAR ROUND TABLE

Qualifying membership in the MDRT is based on minimum commission and gross business generated within a year, and is not based upon performance or returns experienced by any client, or opinions of the advisor's clients or former clients. 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.

ACHIEVING CLIENT EXCELLENCE

The Achieving Client Excellence Award (ACE) was granted by former broker-dealer Signator Investors, Inc.  and the John Hancock family of companies.  The ACE award is granted to the top 250 advisors each year based on total weighted premium from the sale of both proprietary and non-proprietary protection and wealth products.  No other factors are considered. 

NAIFA AWARD

NAIFA award is based upon sales generated by advisors specializing in Life & Annuities & Investments, Health & Employee Benefits, multiline sales or any combination and who have met the adherence to the NAIFA code of ethics, and service to the industry associations. Advisors are also evaluated on professionalism through education and earned designations.

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.
