According to Barron’s, the rankings are based on data provided by over 4,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors.
“Factors included in the rankings are assets under management and revenue produced for the firm, but also regulatory record, quality of practice and philanthropic work, each of which matters deeply to me and made the decision to join the team an even easier one,” says Cosentino.
“Anthony is joining our team during what has been the biggest growth period in our history,” says Trevor Wilde, MBA, AIF®, founder and CEO of Wilde Wealth Management. “We recently invested in doubling the size of our Scottsdale office and look forward to Anthony being among our first leaders in the new space. This is on the heels of expanding our Tempe office as well as partnering with both Muhlenfeld & Huish and Self Wealth Management in Scottsdale, Mosaic Financial Associates in Tempe and Premier Wealth Management Albuquerque over the past 18 months alone, despite the pandemic.”
