METHODOLOGY
The " 2021 PLANADVISER Top 100 Retirement Plan Advisers "
list was compiled from responses to the 2020 PLANADVISER
Retirement Plan Adviser Survey. The list is drawn solely
from a set of quantitative variables and information in the
survey supplied by the advisers themselves.
For an adviser to be eligible for recognition in the 2021
Top 100, he had to submit a completed entry to the aforementioned
2020 Plan Adviser Survey. The survey was
fielded last September through October. A sub-segment of
the survey questions was used to determine eligibility for
the Top 100 list.
