Press Release | September 14, 2015 | By Sierra Investment Management

Santa Monica, CA (September 14, 2015): David C. Wright, Managing Director of Sierra Investment Management, Inc., was named to Barron’s list of the “Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors” in its August 24, 2015 issue. This was the financial magazine’s ninth annual ranking of top independent advisors. Mr. Wright also appeared on the magazine’s 2013 list.

“I am deeply gratified to be included on Barron’s prestigious list, but it’s important to note that our team here at Sierra is deep and talented,” said Mr. Wright. “Since our inception in 1987 we’ve served conservative investors who want to preserve and grow their wealth. We’ve developed and implemented an investment approach designed to limit downside while providing satisfying long-term returns through broad diversification and our unique risk mitigation disciplines.”

Barron’s ranking of the Top 100 independents is based on assets under management, the quality of the advisors’ practices, and the revenue they generate for their firms. As a group, the Top 100 averages 27 years of industry experience and $3.8 billion in client assets under management. Their client rosters average about 1,100 households, and a typical account for one of those households is just over $9 million.
