Annual list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.

Hamilton Capital (Hamilton), a Columbus-based registered investment advisor (RIA) with more than $2.5 billion in assets under management (AUM), today announced that it has been named to the 2019 edition of the Financial Times 300 (FT 300) Top Registered Investment Advisers list. The FT 300 recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S. who excel at a variety of factors, including assets under management, industry credentials, and years in existence.

“It’s an honor to be recognized among 300 of the top independent RIAs in the country, and I’m extremely proud of our team here at Hamilton Capital,” said Matt Hamilton, Chairman and CEO. “Since our inception we’ve been focused on providing excellent investment management and financial planning to our clients and being named to this list yet again is a testament to that commitment.”

Hamilton is a repeat honoree on the annual FT 300 list, which is produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the Financial Times that provides business intelligence on the asset management industry.

RIA firms were selected based on six factors: assets under management (AUM); AUM growth rate; years in existence; advanced industry credentials of the firm’s advisers; online accessibility; and compliance records. The final FT 300 represents an impressive cohort of elite RIA firms, as the “average” practice in this year’s list manages $1.7 billion in assets. The FT 300 Top RIAs hail from 37 states.
