Athena Capital Advisors Named to 2016 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers for Third Consecutive Year

June 16, 2016 – Athena Capital Advisors is pleased to announce it has been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers, as of June 16, 2016. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.

This is the third annual FT 300 list, and third time Athena has been recognized. The most recent FT 300 listing can be found here.

More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). Applicants that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM; AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisors; online accessibility; and compliance records.

The FT 300 is one in series of rankings of top advisers the FT produces in partnership with Ignites Research, including the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers) and the FT 400 (financial advisers from traditional broker-dealer firms).
