Brian Holmes, CEO of Signature Estate and Investment Advisors, Named to Barron's Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors List for 8th Consecutive Year

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - October 01, 2014) -

  • Additional 2014 recognition includes Financial Times Top 300 Registered Investment Advisers List, Forbes Top 50 Wealth Managers List, Los Angeles Business Journal's top money management firms
  • Firm's recent organic growth pace indicative of proven service model for managing high and ultra high net worth clients' financial lives

Signature Estate and Investment Advisors, LLC (SEIA), a full service investment advisory firm headquartered in Southern California, announced today that CEO Brian D. Holmes has been named to the Barron's magazine Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors list for the 8th consecutive year. This comes on the heels of the firm ranking on three other lists of top financial advisory firms, including lists furnished by the Financial Times, Forbes, and the Los Angeles Business Journal.

"It is an honor to be considered, and selected, for the Barron's Top 100 list," says Holmes. "It was an honor in 2007, and has been ever since -- I am continuously humbled to be on a list with such an esteemed group of fellow advisors."

SEIA believes that its approach to client service, unwavering over the years despite the firm's substantial growth, is the key to its success.

Barron's weighs many factors in ranking top advisors -- extremely high client retention, deep experience (19+ years on average practicing wealth management), clean regulatory record, and being active in the community as well as philanthropic, among other criteria. 

The advisors at SEIA bring decades of experience to the challenge of delivering objective, comprehensive and unbiased advice to successful ultra-high net worth professionals and families. Understanding that asset management is just one piece of their client's complex wealth management needs, SEIA's services also include advanced estate and legacy planning, tax planning and philanthropic planning. The company is also heavily involved in the Southern California and Mid-Atlantic communities, sponsoring events and donating to charitable causes.

Holmes concludes, "We aren't buying, or acquiring, 'assets' to achieve our record growth -- we're earning them. Growth by doing right by our clients and receiving referrals from them is the best kind of growth -- we pride ourselves on this and it's a privilege to be recognized for it from time to time."

Among the services SEIA provides to clients:

  • Non-discretionary asset management
  • Comprehensive, client-customized financial planning
  • Relationship based, truly independent and unbiased financial advice
  • Tailored solutions built upon individual needs and goals
  • Advanced estate and legacy planning
  • Tax planning
  • Philanthropic planning and charitable giving strategies
