Investopedia’s methodology focuses on awarding financial advisors who have demonstrated a top-of-the-industry ability to reach the largest and most diverse financial and investing audience. That reach is measured by the impact and quality of the advisor’s published work, public appearances, online following, and commitment to financial literacy across diverse communities. Peer-to-peer nominations are also used to determine the advisor’s influence and reach.
“2021 has taught us that we need financial literacy and guidance more than ever before. The global pandemic has dislocated the capital markets from the economy in unprecedented ways, and millions of people have had their financial lives disrupted,” said Investopedia Editor-in-Chief, Caleb Silver. “This year’s Investopedia 100 have stepped up to that challenge, and the awardees represent advisors from all communities and backgrounds committed to spreading financial literacy and education.”
