ASPEN, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 4, 2012) - Obermeyer Asset Management Company, one of Colorado's premier investment firms, today announced that Wally Obermeyer has been named by Barron's Magazine as one of the nation's Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors for the sixth straight year.
This year's Top 100 was published in Barron's August 27th edition. Winners were ranked on the overall quality of their practice, revenue generated by the team, and assets under management. Mr. Obermeyer has been included in this ranking every year since its inception in 2007.
According to Obermeyer, who serves as president of Obermeyer Asset Management, his steady success is a credit to the members of his team and the clients they serve.
"While it's hard not to be humbled by this kind of recognition, especially by one of Wall Street's most respected publications," says Obermeyer, "it's really a reflection of our overall team and the terrific people we work with. I'm greatly appreciative of them all."
Barron's publishes its Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors annually as a way to identify elite practitioners in the field and highlight the investing practices that are protecting and growing clients' wealth.
Mr. Obermeyer and his team of ten professionals build and manage investment portfolios for over 400 families, representing approximately $800 million in assets. Obermeyer employs a rigorous investment discipline that pursues often-overlooked opportunities in the global marketplace.
"We recognize that the current market and global economic environment is uncertain, but sitting on the sidelines is probably not the best answer," says Mr. Obermeyer. "Our mission, no matter the market environment, is to provide our clients with thoughtful, tailored advice that will help them achieve their goals and grow their net worth over the long run."
