Wally Obermeyer Among "Best of Best" Financial Advisors Attending Barron's Winner's Circle Top Independent Advisors Summit

Exclusive Conference Hosts Elite Gathering of Nation's Preeminent Financial Advisors and Industry Decision Makers

ASPEN, CO--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2011) - Wally Obermeyer, president of Colorado-based Obermeyer Asset Management Company, attended the Barron's Winner's Circle Top Independent Advisors Summit, hosted by Barron's magazine. The invitation-only conference, designed to promote best practices in the industry and the value of advice to the investing public, was held March 23-25 at The Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, FL.

Mr. Obermeyer was one of 68 preeminent advisors in attendance, a number that included both the Top 100 Independent Advisors in the U.S., as ranked and published in Barron's August 30, 2010 issue, and formerly ranked advisors. Also in attendance were approximately 250 financial advisors who were either selected by Barron's or their affiliated firm to participate in the event, including Ali Phillips, a Vice President at the Obermeyer office in Aspen.

"Our inclusion in this event was an honor, both for me and for each member of the Obermeyer team," said Mr. Obermeyer. "I'm also grateful to our wonderful group of clients, without whom this distinction wouldn't be possible."

The exclusive conference was designed to promote best practices and generate new ideas across the industry. Attendees conducted workshops led by the Top 100 Independent Advisors that explored current issues from business development ideas, managing high-net-worth accounts and families, to portfolio management and retirement planning.

"The importance of the work these independent advisors do and their influence will only increase as the nation's Baby Boomers plan for retirement and all Americans struggle to protect and grow their portfolios and their businesses through difficult economic times," said Ed Finn, editor and president of Barron's. "This Summit brings together the industry's leaders from across the country and provides a forum where they can address the key concerns of their clients and develop solutions to their financial planning needs."
