Thrive Award Winner Announcement – KCS Wealth Advisory, LLC
May 5, 2020
KCS Wealth Advisory, LLC has been named a recipient of the WealthManagement.com 2019 Thrive Awards, honoring the nation’s fastest-growing advisors. The WealthManagement.com 2019 Thrive Awards list was compiled by measuring percentage revenue growth over the previous three years. The average revenue growth of Thrive Advisors is three times that of the overall industry.
“The WealthManagement.com Thrive Awards is unlike any other recognition program,” said WealthManagement.com editor-in-chief David Armstrong. “Rather than acknowledging AUM or profitability, it recognizes advisors who are on the way up— those who have proven themselves skilled and ambitious by virtue of three solid years of revenue growth. We believe revenue growth is a metric that demonstrates advisor success in providing services of real value to clients and prospects, and key to building a sustainable business for the future. The WealthManagement.com Thrive Awards list is a publicly visible testament to that success.”
To qualify for the WealthManagement.com 2019 Awards Thrive list, applicants had to be based in the U.S., offer financial services to individual clients, and be free of regulatory actions. The full list will be published on WealthManagement.com on November 1st, and will be featured in Wealth Management magazine.
Applications for the WealthManagement.com 2019 Thrive list were accepted from individuals, teams and companies of all types and sizes—including solo advisors, ensembles, practices, family offices, RIAs and IBD reps. So making the list in 2019 was a remarkable achievement.
“These past three years have been an incredibly exciting period of growth for us, and it’s wonderful to see our success recognized with a WealthManagement.com 2019 Thrive Award. We are looking forward to the future and the continued growth and development of our team, our work for our clients, and continuing to thrive,” said Laura Gilman, co-founder of KCS Wealth Advisory, LLC.
Recipients of the WealthManagement.com 2019 Thrive Awards had to be based in the U.S., offer financial services to individual clients, and be free of regulatory actions. Advisers had to self-report revenue over a three-year period. All data was self-reported, and Adviser knows of no unfavorable ratings. Individuals, teams and companies comprised of solo advisors, ensembles, practices, family offices, RIAs and BD reps were considered with over 300 applications submitted and 200 chosen for the list. The award does not evaluate quality of services provided to clients, does not represent any one client’s experience, and is not indicative of Adviser’s future performance. Working with a Thrive Award recipient or any wealth manager is no guarantee as to future investment success, nor is there any guarantee that the selected wealth managers will be awarded this accomplishment in the future. WealthManagement.com initially charged a $95 fee to participate, which was later refunded/waived.
