Madison Investment Advisors Named to 2015 Financial Times 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers

MADISON, WI--(Marketwired - June 24, 2015) - The prestigious London-based Financial Times newspaper has named Madison Investment Advisors as one of its 300 Top Registered Investment Advisers for 2015. The list recognizes top independent RIA firms from across the U.S.

This is the second annual FT 300 list, produced independently by the Financial Times in collaboration with Ignites Research, a subsidiary of the Financial Times that provides business intelligence on the investment management industry. More than 2,000 elite RIA firms were invited to apply for consideration, based on their assets under management (AUM). The RIA firms that applied were then graded on six criteria: AUM, AUM growth rate, years in existence, advanced industry credentials, online accessibility and compliance records.

The "average" FT 300 firm has been in existence for 23 years and manages $2.6 billion in assets. The 300 top RIAs hail from 34 states and Washington, D.C. Madison Investment Advisors is one of only two Wisconsin based advisory firms so honored.

The Madison organization, founded in 1974, is headquartered at 550 Science Drive in Madison, Wisconsin. The firm and its affiliates oversee more than $15 billion in assets and employ approximately 100 people, with offices in Scottsdale, New York and Toronto. The company manages portfolios of stocks, bonds and mutual funds for a wide range of clients, including mutual fund shareholders via its Madison Funds, institutions and high net-worth individuals. Madison Funds are distributed by MFD Distributor, LLC.

The 2015 Financial Times Top 300 Registered Investment Advisors is an independent listing produced by the Financial Times (June, 2015). The FT 300 is based on data gathered from RIA firms, regulatory disclosures, and the FT's research. As identified by the FT, the listing reflected each practice's performance in six primary areas, including assets under management, asset growth, compliance record, years in existence, credentials and accessibility. Neither the RIA firms nor their employees pay a fee to The Financial Times in exchange for inclusion in the FT 300.
