Two Cetera Advisors Named to 2019 Financial Times 400 List

Cetera is pleased to announce two financial advisors were recognized on the Financial Times 400 List. Recognizing top financial advisors at national, independent, regional and bank broker-dealers from across the U.S., the list groups best-in-class professionals by state or territory. Congratulations to:

  • Paul W. Ewing, Prosperity Advisory Group, Overland Park, KS (affiliated with Cetera Advisors)
  • Kelly Graves, Carroll Financial, Charlotte, NC (affiliated with Cetera Advisor Networks)

“We are proud of the two advisors in our network who are being recognized for their client-centric approach to advice. Strong relationships are core drivers of success in our business – something Cetera is committed to helping our advisors achieve through the delivery of an Advice-Centric Experience®.”

Financial Times reported this seventh annual batch of top FT 400 advisors has an average experience of 29 years in the industry and an average of $1.9 billion in client assets. When surveyed, “managing client relationships” was common theme of importance across the advisor group.

According to Financial Times, featured financial advisors must have over 10-years’ experience and $300 million or more in assets under management to qualify. Rankings are based on a short advisor questionnaire combined with additional research factoring in: assets under management, AUM growth rate, years of experience, compliance record, industry certifications and online accessibility. The research was conducted on behalf of the Financial Times by Ignites Research, a Financial Times sister publication. Listing in this publication and/or award is not a guarantee of future investment success. This recognition should not be construed as an endorsement of the advisor by any client.
