Forbes’ rankings, developed by SHOOK Research, are one of the only advisor rankings with a focus on quality, including surveying and interviewing advisors in-person and virtually. Rankings are based on an algorithm of qualitative data collected through these surveys and interviews to evaluate best practices, level of service, investing models, industry experience, and compliance records, as well as quantitative data such as revenue produced and assets under management.

The Barron’s rankings are based on data provided by around 6,000 of the nation’s most productive advisors. Factors included in the rankings include assets under management, revenue produced for the firm, regulatory record, quality of practice, and philanthropic work. Investment performance isn’t an explicit component because not all advisors have audited results and because performance figures often are influenced more by clients’ risk tolerance than by an advisor’s investment-picking abilities. The Barron’s rankings formula features three major categories of calculations: 1. Assets, 2. Revenue, and 3. Quality of practice.

In January, James Bogart was named to Washington Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 list for 2024. Honoring the next generation of Greater DC-area business leaders, Bogart was awarded due to the impressive growth of the firm under his leadership, the various top advisor lists he has been featured on, his thought leadership in industry and national publications, his work in the community and industry, and the launch of the firm’s professional growth and training program, Advisor Growth Track.

In order to be considered, nominees must live and work in the Washington DC area and are judged based on professional accomplishments, community leadership, awards, and milestones. To learn more about the selection criteria and to see the full list of honorees, please click here.

This honor from the Washington Business Journal came on the heels of another recognition from a prominent local publication – namely, Washingtonian Magazine, where James Bogart was named a 2024 Top Financial Adviser and Fee-Only Financial Planner in Virginia. To arrive at the names of Virginia’s Top Financial Advisers, the Washingtonian distributed surveys to hundreds of people who work in the local financial industry and asked them whom they would trust with their own money, in addition to doing their own research and consulting industry experts and publications. The advisors who received the strongest recommendations were listed as a Top Financial Adviser.

Bogart Wealth was also named to the 2024 Inc. Regionals Fastest-Growing Companies list – Inc. Magazine’s annual ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies by region – coming in at #84 in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Bogart Wealth made the list thanks to their 124% 2-year growth (companies are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2020 to 2022). The firm has experienced rapid growth since 2020 and now manages over $2.5bn in client assets.

As a fiduciary, Bogart Wealth takes great pride and responsibility in being financial educators. This was the catalyst for launching a new, educational podcast called THE BOGART EFFECT: A Wealthy Wisdom Podcast, featuring founder James Bogart and his team of financial advisors and special guests having candid conversations about everything related to personal finance.

Each will share personal stories and experiences, with the goal of taking a fresh look at what saving and planning for the future really looks like. The program is also meant to provide insightful takeaways that listeners can apply to their own financial lives.

The podcast launched with three episodes:

  • In “2024 Planning”, host James Bogart and Financial Advisor Brian Windsor talk about how they prepare and plan for their financial future in the new year.
  • In “How Roth IRAs Can Be Great”, Bogart is joined by Financial Advisor Sydney Rutledge to talk about the benefits of Roth IRAs and why they think it can be a great choice for certain savers and investors.
  • In “The Family Conversation”, Bogart and Financial Advisor Morgan Veth discuss how they approach talking about money, investments, and retirement with their loved ones.
