Stratos Wealth Partners, which maintains over $17 billion in assets under management, was recognized as one of the leading RIAs in the county by Barron’s 2022 Top RIA Firms rankings.* Barron’s has recognized Stratos on this list each year for five consecutive years, based on assets managed, revenue produced and quality of practice.

*The ranking is based on data provided by individual advisors and their firms. Advisor data is confirmed via regulatory databases, cross-checks with securities firms and conversations with individual advisors. The formula Barron’s uses to rank advisors is proprietary. It has three major components: assets, managed, revenue produced and quality of practice. Investment returns are not a component of the rankings because an advisor’s returns are dictated largely by the risk tolerance of Clients. The quality-of-practice component includes an evaluation of each advisor’s regulatory record.
