RiverPoint Capital Management Named to Financial Times’ 2016 List of the
Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers
July 19, 2016 – RiverPoint Capital Management, the Cincinnati-based advisory firm that provides services focused specifically on helping clients achieve their long-term goals, is pleased to announce it has been named to the Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers, as of June 16, 2016. The list recognizes top RIA firms from across the United States.
According to Valerie L. Newell, chairman and managing director of RiverPoint, “We are thrilled with this most recent recognition. Our inclusion on the FT 300 list reaffirms our commitment to clients and our determination to help them with whatever necessary to meet their long-term financial goals.”
This recognition falls on the heels of RiverPoint being ranked first in Ohio among 1,200 advisors nationally by Barron’s as well as being included on Barron’s 2015 list of the Top 100 Independent Wealth Advisors in the United States.
This is the third annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times Ltd. in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the FT that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. The “average” FT 300 firm has been in existence for 22 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets.
More than 1,500 pre-screened RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). Applicants that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM; asset growth; the company’s age; industry certifications of key employees; SEC compliance record; and online accessibility. FT caps the number of companies from any one state. The cap is roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the US.
The FT 300 is one in series of rankings of top advisers the FT produces in partnership with Ignites Research, including the FT 401 (DC retirement plan advisers) and the FT 400 (financial advisers from traditional broker-dealer firms).

About the FT 300
To ensure a list of established companies with deep, institutional expertise, Financial Times examined the database of RIAs registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission and selected those that reported to the SEC that they had $300m or more in assets under management (AUM). The Financial Times’ methodology is quantifiable and objective. The RIAs had no subjective input.
The FT invited qualifying RIA companies — more than 1,500 — to complete a lengthy application that provided more information. This was added to their own research into firm practices, including data from regulatory filings. Some 520 RIA companies applied and 300 made the final list. The formula the FT uses to grade advisers is based on six broad factors and calculates a numeric score for each adviser. Areas of consideration include adviser AUM, asset growth, the company’s age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record, and online accessibility.
