The list is compiled by SHOOK Research, a third-party research firm which uses quantitative and qualitative data to rank member firms from across the country, with a focus on evaluating client relationships, underlying culture, and firm leadership. SHOOK Research uses telephone, virtual, and in-person due diligence interviews along with quantitative factors such as revenue trends, AUM, compliance records, and industry experience in its process. SHOOK Research received more than 36,000 nominations, of which just over 21,000 were invited to participate in the online survey. Neither Forbes nor SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings.

“It’s truly an honor to earn this level of recognition,” said Arnerich Massena Co-CEO Reegan Rae, CPWA®. “In our survey for SHOOK Research, we shared stories to illustrate some of the ways Arnerich Massena goes above and beyond for our clients ― because they are more than clients; they’re family. We’re deeply pleased that Forbes recognizes the value of strong relationships in the work we do.”

Co-CEO and Chief Investment Officer Bryan Shipley, CFA, CAIA adds, “We’re very proud of this remarkable achievement. I think the fact that we don’t just talk the talk, but walk the walk is an important factor. Our Certified B Corporation™ status; our thought leadership and innovation in intentional investing; and our work in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are all part of our fundamental ethos and mission to build lasting legacies in service of a greater good.”
