Compliance Notice

Financial Times

"FT" and "Financial Times" are trademarks of The Financial Times Ltd. ("FT").The Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers is an independent listing ("The FT 300") produced annually by the Financial Times (June, 2017). The FT is not affiliated with Hamilton Capital Management ("HCM"). The FT 300 is presented as "an elite group," not a competitive ranking of one to 300. The results are not based upon information or opinions of participating Registered Investment Advisers’ ("RIA’s") clients. Therefore, inclusion on The FT 300 is not representative of any participating RIA’s clients’ experiences. Neither the participating RIAs nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in The FT 300.

The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIAs, regulatory disclosures, The FT’s research, and/or research conducted on The FT’s behalf by "Ignites Distribution Research," a Financial Times sister publication. The FT invited RIAs reporting $300 million or more in client assets under management to complete a lengthy application, which was analyzed along with data available from regulatory filings. The FT indicates that the methodology used to evaluate inclusion on The FT 300 is quantifiable and objective, and that the participating RIAs had no subjective input in the analysis.

Approximately 520 RIAs applied and 300 made the final list. The formula utilized to evaluate participating RIAs for inclusion on the list is based on six factors and calculates a numeric score for each participating RIA. Areas of consideration include: assets under management, asset growth, RIA age, industry certifications of key employees, SEC compliance record, and online accessibility. By considering the "SEC compliance record," eligibility to appear on The FT 300 is designed to ensure that a participating RIA has an established and significant history and record free from regulatory sanctions. Assets under management and asset growth, combined, comprised roughly 80 to 85 per cent of each participating RIA’s score. Additionally, The FT caps the number of companies from any one state. The cap is roughly based on the distribution of millionaires across the US.

To the best of HCM’s knowledge: The FT does not include RIAs on The FT 300 if the ratings are not statistically valid with respect to any RIA; and there are no facts that would call into question the validity of the inclusion on The FT 300 or the appropriateness of HCM advertising the same.

Inclusion on the FT 300 is absolutely not indicative of HCM’s future performance, or any future performance pertaining to its clients’ investments; should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that they will experience a certain level of results if HCM is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services; and should not be construed as a current or past endorsement of HCM by any of its clients.

FA’s 2017 Annual RIA Ranking (“Annual RIA Ranking”) is an independent listened produced annually by Financial Advisor Magazine (“FA”). FA is not affiliated with Hamilton Capital Management (“HCM”). The list is not a competitive ranking, but rather a numerical listing of independent Register Investment Advisers (“RIA”) based upon discretionary and non-discretionary assets under management as reported on the firm’s Form ADV. The results are not based upon information or opinions of participating RIA’s clients. Therefore, inclusion in the Annual RIA Ranking is not representative of any participating RIA’s clients’ experiences. Neither the participating RIA’s nor their employees pay a fee to FA in exchange for inclusion in the Annual RIA Ranking.

The Annual RIA ranking is based upon data gathered from the participating RIA’s and regulatory disclosures. To be eligible for the rankings, firms must be independent registered investment advisors and file their own Form ADV statements with the SEC. In addition, they must provide financial planning and related services to individual clients.

Inclusion in the Annual RIA Rankings is absolutely not indicative of HCM’s future performance, or any future performance pertaining to its clients’ investments; should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that they will experience a certain level of results if HCM is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services; and should not be construed as a current or past endorsement of HCM by any of its clients.

The Inc. 5000 is an independent listing produced annually by Inc. Magazine. The results are not based upon information or opinions of participating companies’ clients. Therefore, inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list is not representative of any participating company’s clients’ experience. Participating companies pay a $150 non-refundable application and processing fee in advance to be considered for the list. This processing fee covers a portion of the operating costs of the survey.

The Inc. 5000 is based upon data gathered from the participating companies. To ensure the integrity and credibility of the list, Inc. then verifies the 2013 and 2016 revenue numbers for every Inc. 5000 applicant.

Companies are ranked according to the percentage growth of their annual revenue over a three-year period. To assess this, Inc. asks each company for 2013 and 2016 revenues, which provides a three-year growth period, using 2013 as a base year for growth.

To be considered for the list, the company must: have generated revenue by March 31, 2013; have generated at least $100,000 in revenue in 2013; have generated at least $2 million in revenue in 2016; and be privately held, for profit; based in the U.S., and independent (not a subsidiary or division of another company).

Inclusion in the Inc. 5000 is absolutely not indicative of HCM’s future performance, or any future performance pertaining to its clients’ investments; should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that they will experience a certain level of results if HCM is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services; and should not be construed as a current or past endorsement of HCM by any of its clients.
