Columbus-based investment management and financial advisory firm Hamilton Capital Management, Inc., has once again been ranked among the nation’s top independent financial advisors by the editors of Financial Advisor magazine.

The ranking is based on the magazine’s 2011 RIA Survey, which gathers data from independent financial advisors across the country and ranks participating firms by total assets under management.

Hamilton Capital ranked 120th on the list, which appears in the July 2011 issue of the magazine. It’s the fourth consecutive year the firm has appeared in the rankings.

“Like us, our clients believe that a disciplined, forward-looking approach is what achieves consistent results,” said Hamilton Capital Chairman and CEO R. Matthew Hamilton. “Their confidence and our collective results have us ranked among the nation’s top financial advisors yet again, and we’re very proud of both.”

Last year the firm was named to’s list of the nation’s Top Wealth Management Firms – another ranking of the nation’s top wealth advisors – for the ninth year in a row.
