Avidian Wealth Solutions Honored on USA Today’s 2024 List of Best Financial Advisory Firms

Avidian Wealth Solutions proudly announces its inclusion on USA Today’s prestigious list of Best Financial Advisory Firms for 2024. This recognition marks the second consecutive year that Avidian has received the honor, further solidifying its position among the nation’s top financial advisory firms.

USA Today, in partnership with Statista, conducts a rigorous evaluation process to identify the top registered investment advisory (RIA) firms in the United States. The ranking methodology is based on two things: recommendations from financial advisors, clients, and industry experts via an independent survey among over 25,000 individuals, and both short-term (12-month) and long-term (5-year) growth in assets under management (AUM) development analyzed using publicly available data. 

Avidian emerged as a standout performer in advisor, client, and industry recommendations, as well as both short- and long-term AUM growth, underscoring their commitment to delivering exceptional results for clients and the trust and confidence placed in Avidian by those they serve.

Luke Patterson, CEO of Avidian Wealth Solutions, expressed gratitude for the recognition, stating, “We are honored to once again be acknowledged as one of the best financial advisory firms in the nation. This achievement is a testament to the dedication of our team and the trust our clients place in us.”

Jim Atkinson, COO of Avidian, emphasized the firm’s ongoing commitment to excellence, stating, “While we are proud of this accomplishment, we remain focused on continuously enhancing our capabilities to better serve our clients’ evolving needs.”
