AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 10, 2019--

Kestra Financial, Inc. (Kestra Financial), an industry-leading independent advisor platform, congratulates 12 of its associated advisors for being named to the 2019 edition of the Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Advisors. In its fifth year, the FT 401 list recognizes elite financial advisors who specialize in serving defined contribution (DC) retirement plans, such as 401(k) and 403(b) plans, across the U.S.

The following Kestra Financial-associated advisors were honored on the list:

“Kestra Financial is privileged to partner with advisors nationwide who are in the upper echelon of the retirement plan space,” said Taylor Hammons, Head of Retirement Plans at Kestra Financial. “We have continued to expand and enhance our retirement plan services, and the growing representation of Kestra Financial-associated advisors on the Financial Times 401 Top Retirement Advisors is further evidence of this commitment. We congratulate all honorees on this prestigious achievement and look forward to empowering their future success.”

To be considered for inclusion in the list, financial advisors were required to manage $75 million or more in DC plan assets and have DC assets account for at least 20% of their total assets under management (AUM). The applicants were then graded on six criteria: DC AUM; DC AUM growth rate; specialization in DC plans; years of experience; advanced industry credentials; and compliance record.
