The top 10 branch managers
Branch managers play an outsized role in the careers of the advisors they oversee.
Consequently, On Wall Street gets a surfeit of nominations each year for the annual branch manager awards.
Advisors highlighted their managers' ability to see things from others’ points of view, tackle headaches holding FAs back from doing their jobs, and jumping in if a client issue needs to be resolved.
A panel of three independent judges narrowed advisors’ nominations down this year to a top 75 list. Then they whittled down the list even further to just 10 branch managers to honor as the best of the best. These industry leaders represent regional brokerages and wirehouses.
This year's judges were Isabella Cagnazzo Fonseca, wealth management consultant at research firm Aite Group; David Lo, associate partner and head of U.S. client insight at consulting firm Scorpio Partnership; and Marina Shtyrkov, research analyst at Cerulli Associates, a research firm.
