Columbus-based investment management and financial advisory firm Hamilton Capital Management, Inc., has been named to’s 2010 Top Wealth Managers list, a ranking of the nation’s top wealth advisors.

The tenth annual list, which is based on survey results compiled by the financial website’s editors, recognizes the top SEC-registered investment advisors in the U.S. by average assets under management per client.

This is the ninth time Hamilton Capital has been named to the list, which also will appear in the September 2010 issues of Investment Advisor and Research magazines.

The firm also was ranked among the nation’s top independent financial advisors by Financial Advisor magazine in July. It was Hamilton Capital’s third consecutive year on that list.

“The firms that participate in this survey are the lion’s share of the largest, most established registered investment advisors (RIAs) in America,” said Editor-in-Chief Kathleen McBride. “These are the firms our survey partner, Fusion Advisor Network President Philip Palaveev, describes as the ones every RIA wants to be when they grow up.”

“We’re very pleased to continue to be ranked among the country’s top wealth advisors,” said Hamilton Capital Chairman and CEO R. Matthew Hamilton. “It’s a credit not only to our outstanding team and the disciplined approach we take to investing, but also to the trust and confidence our clients continue to place in us to help them reach their financial goals.”
