*Important Disclosure Information: *The criteria for nomination and selection process included five core components: Any woman currently working in New York in the financial sector such as banks, investment firms, insurance companies, mutual funds, hedge funds, private equity funds and stock exchanges; company affiliation based within the 5 boroughs of New York City or the counties of Westchester, Bergen, Nassau or Rockland; working for a minimum of 5 years in the industry; career professional achievements with an emphasis on the past 12 to 18 months; and involvement in community and/or philanthropic activities, mentoring programs, diversity & inclusion initiatives. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities. The award is meant as a starting point for clients looking for an advisor—a first-pass vetting that can help investors narrow a search. Every advisor will have his or her own approach to investing, financial planning and other services. Clients are encouraged to approach a search for an advisor the way they would a search for a doctor—interviewing multiple professionals and getting opinions from multiple third parties.
**The 2019 Top Women Advisors ranking system is proprietary to Barron’s. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities. Jane Newton did not pay a fee to participate in the Barron’s rankings; however, she completed a survey and provided the information needed to Barron’s to participate in the ranking.
