Paul Taghibagi of Signature Estate & Investment Advisors, LLC Ranked Among Barron's America's Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 17, 2013) -  

  • Paul Taghibagi, Co-Founder and Senior Partner of Signature Estate & Investment Advisors, is ranked #71 in Barron's 2013 list of America's Top 100 Independent Financial Advisors.
  • Taghibagi's position on Barron's list has moved up 5 spots from his #76 rank in the 2012 list.

Signature Estate & Investment Advisors (SEIA), a full service wealth management firm headquartered in Southern California, today announced that Barron's has recognized SEIA's Co-Founder and Senior Partner, Paul Taghibagi, as #71 in their 2013 list of America's top 100 independent financial advisors. This marks Taghibagi's second year of inclusion on Barron's prestigious list.

This is Barron's seventh annual ranking of top independent advisors. The editors at Barron's focus on total assets under advisement and revenue generated by the advisor's team, as well as the overall quality of the practice. Investment performance is not an explicit criterion, because clients' investment goals vary. In many cases, the objective is preservation of wealth, rather than market-trouncing returns.

"It is an honor to be included in this prestigious list of America's top independent advisors," said Paul Taghibagi. "This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team at SEIA. We succeed because we love helping our clients and strive to deliver top results."

The group's assets under management grew an average of 16% over the past 12 months through June 30, the result of solid investment returns and new business. That growth rate is up from the 12% annual pace posted for advisors on Barron's 2012 list. Barron's ranked advisors, typically backed by sizeable teams of financial-service professionals, increased average assets under management to $3.6 billion in 2013, up from $3.1 billion one year ago.
