connects consumers with local financial professionals in the top third for attendance of continuing professional education classes for low-expense investment professionals.

To qualify for a listing in 2018, advisors were required to attend at least nine classes and pass a 10-question quiz after each class.

Monthly classes are taught by thought leaders in investment management and financial planning for three decades: independent economist Fritz Meyer, portfolio analytics expert Dr Craig Israelsen, and tax and financial planning guru Robert Keebler, CPA®/PFS®.

Making transparent an advisor’s attendance record at a continuing education program about the latest news affecting low-expense investment practitioners provides a benchmark based on behavior aligned with a consumer’s best interest.
