Dr. Gene Henssler Makes Annual List

Gene W. Henssler, Ph.D., was recognized by Barron’s Magazine “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors.” Barron’s published their annual state-by-state listing of financial advisors in the March 10, 2018 issue. Coming in at No. 7 this year, Dr. Henssler has made the Georgia list since 2014.

See the List

Barron’s 2018 “Top 1,200 Financial Advisors” published in the March 10, 2018 issue of Barron’s. Barron's publishes four financial advisor rankings each year: The Top 100, The Top 100 Women, The Top 100 Independents and The Top 1,200, in which advisors are ranked on a state-by-state basis. 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. For more information on rating methodology, go to http://online.barrons.com/report/top-financial-advisors. The rating may not be representative of any one client’s experience because it reflects a sample of all the experiences of the Financial Advisor’s clients. The rating is not indicative of the Financial Advisor’s future performance. Neither Henssler Financial nor any of its Financial Advisors pay a fee to Barron’s in exchange for the rating.
